[USRP-users] Can USRP X300 support 2*2 MIMO

Hello, thanks for your comments!

1. I'm very sure I've saved the  correct complex data in a .txt file. the complex data use "float32"  format, each complex data has 64bits. I did a lot of similar experiment with single antenna mode, so I'm sure the file data is correct.

2. How can I specify the subdev spec accordingly (A:0 B:0), just add "(A:0 B:0)" following the "Mb0: Subdev Spec"?

3. What does "L" & "S" mean exactly?

A couple of comments:

- Are you truly saving complex data in a .txt file? Usually .txt
indicates something else. The same file->throttle->Freq Sink will show
the correct spectrum, right?

- For X300 in particular, we have fixed a lot of things since 3.7.0. I
recommend an update.

To reiterate, please make sure the file data is correct.

- You shouldn't need to, but you might want to specify the subdev spec
accordingly (A:0 B:0).

- Red means 'TX', so according to your pic, you *are* tx'ing on both

These are fine.

These are not good. I wonder if the MIMO setup is too fast... Is there a
chance you could try running GNU Radio master branch?
