You need to add an argument to gr.ofdm_frame_acquisition in
ofdm_receiver.py (in python/gnuradio/blks2impl).

In the current Git master, this is located on line 109 of
ofdm_receiver.py. After the "ks[0]" argument, you can put in an
integer. This is the maximum number of bins the receiver will search
over for correlation. It defaults to 10.

Nope, this is typical of radio hardware. They are always off
frequency. If two oscillators are off frequency and then multiplied up
to another frequency, the difference will also be magnified. So a 2.4
GHz board will have a larger frequency offset than if you ran it just
through the BasicTx/Rx boards (even though the ratios should be the
