It might transmit the opposite of what it is expecting to flush the
receiver scrambler and get it synchronized.  So if you need a long
length of 1's, maybe it starts sending a couple symbols worth of 0's
first - gets synchronized, then starts the sending of 1's.  Same with
the 0's for the preamble.

Maybe despread your symbols and run through the derandomizer, then
check to look at the pattern.  You should see your long string of 1's
or 0's (whatever you're looking for).  Then check to see what they
send beforehand?
