Just tagging on here... The way you have it set up is compare the
incoming bit to 1, next compare the incoming bit to 0. And it will
alternately compare incoming bits between 1 and 0. This BER block will
probably not be useful if you don't have access (within this
flowgraph) to the source generating data.

If you haven't looked at examples yet you should do that too. They are
probably located in /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/

There's a BER example at
