[USRP-users] 10MHz to 1GHz receive and transmit;

I need a system like below;

Transmitter subsystem;
1 Antenna

Receiver subsystem;
1 Antenna

All the system must operate between 10MHz to 1GHz at least.

The questions are;

How can I send and receive signal which has a frequency between 30MHz and 50MHz ?
I have only one antenna for transmitter and one antenna for receiver. So if I use 2 db, I will need a physical switch (1x2).
I want to ask how can I do switching process? And how can I control this switch? 

For example it can switch automatically above 50MHz to wbx and below 50MHz to LFRX.
I think I can use GPIO pins on the WBX board for switch control.

Furkan -

You will need to use the USRP1, for sure.

Unless I mis-understand what you need, this hardware set-up should work for you:

USRP Side-A:
TX: LFTX  : DC - 30 MHz 
RX: LFRX : DC - 30 MHz

USRP Side-B:
TX / RX: WBX : 50 - 2200 MHz

What did you mean by switching your daughterboards?  You shouldn't need to ever actually physically move them.

You can use both sides of the USRP1 at the same time, even from the same flowgraph, so the software isn't anymore complex.
