No need for a USRP ... just simulation!

It depends on what you're trying to simulate.  The RF hardware with
I/Q phase/DC imbalances?  Just baseband distortions?  Fading?  Doppler
spread?  Multipath?  AWGN?

I recommend the book:

    "Simulation of Communication Systems" ISBN 0-306-46267-2

It's heavy on the math, and it's really for advanced readers - but it
covers everything.

I believe there may be some channels implemented within GNU Radio
right now, but there hasn't been much discussion of using GNU Radio
strictly for simulation.

Hope this helps.
