Are you really sure about 177 MHz and not 177.5 MHz?

But when I tested the stick remotely (I don't own the stick) I also had 
problems to tune to VHF frequencies.

If possible, can you please try the stick with the same frequency in

You don't need to. The device indeed contains the MT352, but the 
programming is not done at driver level, but inside the firmware (also 
stated on the wiki page).

When you compile the module into your kernel, then it won't be listed when 
calling lsmod.

I think this is the first remote-control-poll, which fails, don't worry.
