Thank you for both your kind words and for the constructive feedback.  I
agree fully that our documentation certainly could be better.  We have
been trying to remedy that, and I believe that the UHD and basic
hardware documentation is reasonably complete:


However, it does not address using GNU Radio with UHD or creating GRC
applications, so this is definitely the next area which we will be
covering.  One other thing in the works is a screencast of creating some
simple applications using GRC.
