I am trying to store WiFi signals samples in a
file using file sink block, using GNU radio, for spectrum
sensing. I know that a single WiFi channel has a bandwidth
of 20-22 MHz. So should I use the sample rate in GNU radio
block to 40e6 - 44e6 or can I use a lower value? Can I use
1e6 as sampling rate?
What is the lower bound for the sample rate in
I am confused about giving the sample rate.
A couple of different issues here:
GnuRadio *generally* deals with *complex samples*. Complex
sampling satisfies the Nyquist Sampling Criterion in a way that
allows you to
run those samples at a rate == bandwidth (more or less).
Gnu Radio doesn't care, per se, about sample rates, and will
pass your request on to the underlying *HARDWARE*. The hardware
definitely have limits and policies with respect to sample
rate, and to answer the question "what sample rates are allowed"
you need to refer
to the hardware you're using.
If you don't understand what the Nyquist Sampling Criterion is,
you should definitely spend some time researching that, and how
to the kinds of things you might be wanting to do with
samples, and why 1e6 is not an appropriate sampling rate for a
signal with an
information bandwidth of 22MHz.
