[USRP-users] Storing signals with full bandwidth of USRP x300/x310

Thank you Matt for the quick reply.

The requirement to store the data is quite common in radiolocation (i.e.
SAR imaging) as the radar data is often postprocessed with use of
different algorithms. Examples of equipment that can be attached to USRP
x300 in order to store/send large amounts of data with high bandwidth
might be very valuable for users performing radar measurements with use
of the USRPs.
