I thought then it might work when I do the 'vector thing' in the middle.
In either case, the receiver USRP does not detect anything.

Have you tried to run usrp_fft.py at the receiver to make sure you see some energy?

Also, have you just tried using benchmark_ofdm_tx.py on one side and benchmark_ofdm_rx.py on another?

There are a lot of parameters to tweak. The amplitude is one important one (high enough to be seen at the receiver, low enough to avoid clipping), and the decim/interp values depend on the speed of your processor.

FWIW, just saying the receiver isn't getting anything isn't too useful when asking for help with all of the possible issues.

>From the 'benchmark_ofdm_tx.py' I've saved the OFDM signal to a file using 
'gr.file_sink', instead of sending it to 'usrp.sink_c'.
And then I want to read the data from the saved file and send it though the 
transmitter USRP, and receive it from the other USRP, but does not work.

Could anyone give tip, why it does not work? Or give help how to make it work?

This is my code:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from gnuradio import gr
from gnuradio import usrp

from numpy import *

class send_from_file_graph (gr.flow_graph):

    def __init__(self):
filename = 'tx_usrp_data.dat'
    # which I had saved from 'benchmark_ofdm_tx.py' using 
'gr.file_sink(gr.sizeof_gr_complex, filename)'
    src = gr.file_source ( gr.sizeof_gr_complex, filename, False)
self.v_snk = gr.vector_sink_c() # setup usrp
    self.u = usrp.sink_c(fusb_block_size=0, fusb_nblocks=0)
    self._tx_subdev_spec = usrp.pick_tx_subdevice(self.u)
    self.subdev = usrp.selected_subdev(self.u, self._tx_subdev_spec)
self.u.tune(self.subdev._which, self.subdev, 2.45e9)
    # ##
self.connect(src, self.v_snk)
    v_src = gr.vector_source_c(self.v_snk.data())
    self.connect(v_src, self.u)

Why don't you just do:

self.connect(src, self.u)

Instead of all the vector stuff in the middle?
