[USRP-users] UBX coherence between TX and RX

It is not just a phase offset. It is a frequency offset. The phase drifts between the two. I can tolerate a phase offset at startup. A freq offset however is causing problems.

Can you elaborate on what "not coherent" means to you – the relative
phase should be constant after each tune, but if you don't tune
simultaneously, i.e. with timed commands, random at each tune.
