With the current firmware in the USRP, to transmit on two channels
simultaneously requires that you configure the USRP for two channels
and then interleave the data for the two channels.

If you look at gnuradio-examples/usrp/fm_tx_2_duaghterboards.py you'll
see an example that does this.

In your case, you'll need to modulate the two packets worth of data,
then interleave the two streams of samples before sending them to the

In the future, the "inband signaling" features may allow you to do
something similar by specifying the "time at which to begin
transmission" for each packet.  However, I recommend that at this
time you interleave the output of your two streams.
