There will be a slight frequency offset between devices. Often with some
of the example apps, this offset will cause the signal to be outside of
the filter pass band. It would be good to make sure that the received
spectrum appears at the expected frequency:

some faq on this:

In general, it looks like you are seeing a lot of dropped packets or
checksum errors. You have to diagnose the issue at a lower level. How
does the received spectrum look? How-about the received constellation?
Any obvious distortions, etc?
