Placeholders of images I'm about to upload.
Channel 1 (yellow) is the low pass filtered output. Channel 2 (blue) is the output at the final 3 dB pad after the second mixer.
In all cases, there is a lot of noise appearing at channel 1 for a currently unknown reason, possibly poor LPF design.
NewFile1 - no power applied to receiver.
NewFile0 - input is a 50 R terminator. Channel 2 displays (what looks like) reasonably little noise. Here there is no filtering at all, including bandwidth limiting on the DSO.
