Sounds good.

I suspect Matt can get you USRP's within a week.  
Money has a way of speeding up those global transportation problems ;)

This sounds reasonable.  We currently don't have anything that
simulates fading channels and it would be great to add that to our
collection of blocks.

How will you know if your simulation is correct and that your channel
simulator reflects some semblance of reality? [ The devil made me say it ;) ]
