Hi Community team,


I just read previous post regarding sweep CW on entire band from 70MHz to 6GHz.  But I'm not very clear the correct procedures. Let say , I setup those signal on GNURadio, what is sample rate should be define, as I know maximum is 61.44MSPS that only generate CW max around 30.72MHz.


If I want to generate CW ( using Signal Source module) on 1Ghz, should I define my sample rate to more than >3GHz !

I try to change the sample rate >61.44MSPS, appear notification:

Unable to write attribute in_voltage_sampling_frequency:-22

Unable to write attribute out_voltage_sampling_frequency:-22


But gnuradio still able to execute and I believe the result display is not correct.




if I want to generate CW 1Ghz, I should set the signal source (for example) 10Mhz and change/sweep LO to 1GHz, 1.01GHz, 1.02 Ghz,.....3.99Hhz and 4Ghz. I'm right?


Thank you
