Words Must Be Said
- The Gnuradio mailing list is a treasure and some mailing list answers should be gold weighted.- Please send feedback corrections for any technical mistakes especially those labeled by#FIXME#- Gnuradio is great and impressive project and the USRP is an amazing device. I always ask myself, how they build this great project? We’ll never know the answer.
