Are you using one or two daughterboards?

What kind of daughterboard(s)?

Is your rx-subdev-spec the same as tx-subdev-spec?

Checking to see if r is None is highly recommended.

If you're using a RFX-900 for TX, is the saw filter still in?
(It comes with a 902 to 928 MHz ISM band filter.)

Does the data in usrp_data_receive.dat look reasonable?
What are the min and max values that you see?

What's your tx-amplitude?

Depending on the tx daughterboard, you may need


If you're trying to use a single RFX-* daughterboard, you'll need to
set the RX to receive from the RX2 antenna port, not the TX/RX port:
