In your original post you mentioned that you had an older card which
worked fine with this same setup. Is this still correct that if you run
this same test with the other card then it will receive a signal OK?

If this is the case, then your issue is that the new card doesn't like
the offset and can only tune using the non-offset 506MHz frequency?

Or do both cards only work at 506MHz now that you've moved?
