Hi there,

There has been little development of GSM tools for USRP the past two years. The USRP 1 and 2 (and possibly others supported by GnuRadio) can intercept a few adjacent GSM channels and - using the Airprobe tools - decode some of this data.

The same capabilities can be had with a handful of Osmocom-capable handsets at a fraction of the price (ie, at the sysmocom web shop). All recent development of tools has concentrated on the Osmocom platform. 

One exception may be BTS emulators with OpenBTS - the most popular - still running on USRP (or custom hardware by RangeNetworks). Sylvain Munaut already showed the possibility of using an Osmocom phone as a base station, though, so this may become available at some point.
