My experience using the SDR-IQ at 28-MHz as IF for my 2m-eme station 
is that the SDR-IQ seems gain deficient.  I lowered my MDS -14 dBm by 
adding 18-dB of IF gain before the SDR-IQ.  I am using a DEMI 144/28 
behind two 2m preamps with total gain of 30 dB.  I see -28 traces 
with 100-KHz Bandwidth (RBW ~ 3Hz).
