If you are looking to align multiple channels, the uhd source block will
do that automatically when you set it up for multiple channels.

If you want the timestamps, you can use UHD directly (see the

Or from gnuradio, you can make a trivial mod to the source block's work
function to intercept the RX metadata and create a tag for each
timestamp. This tag will get propagated down the chain of processing blocks.
