Hi Nazmul - If you use the GNU Radio GIT master and update it regularly, I 
think that

GNU Radio Website, accessed February 2012. [Online]. Available: 

is complete enough, since it refers to both the project in general as well as 
the code.  If you use a specific version (e.g., of the GIT master or a release 
such as 3.5.1), you'd probably want to state that just to make it clear.  The 
(La)TeX markup that I use for the above is:

  author = "{GNU Radio Website}",
  year = "{accessed February 2012}",
  url = {http://www.gnuradio.org}

The important parts for any URL-based citation such as this are: (0) The 
project name, with any distinguishing characteristics needed to make it unique 
(such as the version number or extended name if there are more than 1 projects 
using a similar name); (1) when you last accessed the URL, since websites do 
change and sometimes you won't have accessed it for a while before you 
submitted the paper; and (2) a valid URL as of the month of last access (for 
example, the above URL works with or without the trailing '/', while others 
require it).  That said, before I submit such a paper I always work through the 
URLs and update their info, verifying each one to make sure it is still valid & 
if not then figuring out the correct URL.

Hope this helps! - MLD
