ok, you two convinced me :) I am not that experienced yet. It just
seemed a bit low to me. If it is a value one can expect, I will continue
to tune the jamming signal.
The results aren't bad yet. But it is always good to improve efficiency :)
Have a nice day

It's not much at all, in fact, expect a lot more. Look at it only in
terms of dB, beccause the fact is, whenever you have a communications
system, you can only couple so much energy to the receiver.
I don't think the micaz is very unprecise. Perhaps a few dBm.
A few dBm is horrible precision.
it is -8 instead of -13. And perhaps I just get 10 or 15 dBm out of
the URSP2 antenna.
You will always have some loss. The maximum output power from the
AD9862 IC is a maximum value.
Even than there is still a huge factor difference.
That's not huge.
So if I didn't calculate something wrong or have wrong assumptions ...
there should be a way to improve it. At least a bit. :)
The only way you're going to improve this is by using a more efficient
antenna or an antenna with gain, or by putting an amplifier on the
USRP output. Perhaps it is also likely there is some improvement
needed with the jamming signal you are using.
