The USRP's run with different clocks, start at different times, etc.,
etc., so the clocks are not synchronized and often need to be with some
phase lock loop technique or other synchronization method (see the comm
books by Proakis, Sklar, Rhode, or Ziemer that discuss this topic, or
Gardner's book on PLLs).
But that's beside the point because you're using GMSK, which doesn't
need this and the M&M block tracks the symbol timing. So, sorry, back to
the starting point.
You should try using usrp_fft.py to see if there is any power being
received when you're transmitting.
