[USRP-users] signal level oscilation at the beginning of burst

Hey Jie,

I'm only guessing here but I think what you  are seeing are the effects
of using a real-world system with non-ideal frequency response with a
signal that has very high frequency content (due to short rise and fall
times of the pulses).
Attached you see a simulation of a pulse source with very short rise and
fall times connected to an LC series circuit.
The blue trace is showing the output of the pulse source and the green
trace is showing the signal after the inductor.
If you were to apply some sort of pulse-shaping to your signal, as you
would normally do in a communication system, you probably would not see
those oscillations any more.
