Good day,

We are beginners using the USRP1 with WBX v.3 50-2200 daughterboard and GNU radio Companion version with UHD_003.008.000-18-g864f84b5 installed on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating system. Our goal in using these is to create an SDR WBFM receiver.

We have followed what was done in the video posted by the ettus research (http://www.ettus.com/kb/detail/sdr-for-beginners-building-an-fm-receiver-with-the-usrp-and-gnu-radio) but have encountered some problems. As we ran the GRC file, both the FFT plot and Scope plot appeared but all we could hear are static sounds together with the script shown below:

Executing: "/media/thesis/Data/Downloads/Thesis/FM Reciever using GRC/fm_example.py"

linux; GNU C++ version 4.8.2; Boost_105400; UHD_003.008.000-18-g864f84b5

>>> Done

As we are doing all the simulations, we did not use any antenna yet. However, we are waiting for the arrival of the antenna LP0410 400 MHz to 1 GHz Log Periodic PCB directional antenna, at 5-6dBi Gain. We have purchased this antenna for it is capable to receive signals from 88.1MHz to 107.9MHz (frequency range of all the FM stations that we are about to receive).
