I've borrowed a Funcube Dongle Pro and tried to use it with
osmocom-tetra.  I've manually tuned it to a tetra carrier using the
Qt-GUI, and it I can see the carrier very clearly in the spectrum/fft.
However, I'm getting many more bit errors than with a USRP2+WBX board.
Also, I have the feeling that the WBX has a much higher sensitivity,
even with the FCDP input LNA at 30dB maxed out. 

Can anyone confirm these findings?

I'll do some more investigation and report back here.
