Decimation *is* filtering (or, more precisely, filtering is an integral
part of decimation).
filter the signal at the receive bandwidth?
On the USRP1, the A/D is sampled at a fixed 64Msps
On the USRP2, the A/D is sampled at a fixed 100Msps
The bandwidth that is "presented" to the host interface is whatever the
"native" sample rate is, divided by the decimation value, which is
a fixed integer, and must be even.
So, using the USRP1 example, which samples at 64Msps, if you use a
decimation value of 8, the bandwidth "presented" to the host
is 8MHz (64Msps/8), centered around whatever your center frequency
is. If your desired bandwidth doesn't exactly match whatever
gets presented to the host, you'll have to further filter in
software, which is where Gnu Radio comes in if you're using Gnu Radio, or
what OpenBTS does using its own software.
An added "wrinkle" is that for OpenBTS, generally the USRP1 is modified
to use a 52MHz sample clock.
