Don't some of the daughterboards also have some AGC built in?  I can
see if the interpolation rate is not high enough, the signal power
will not go down enough (especially after the RRC filtering) to really
look like much of a difference if any due to the AGC circuitry and
other transients that may occur on signals quickly coming on then off.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think using a very large
interpolation rate might help clarify the situation.
