There is another option. You may use SpectraVue to change
the contents of the non-volatile RAM inside the SDR-IQ.
I never did that and I do not know what effects it would
have, but most likely it would be equivalent to change

I actually do not know the details of MAP-65, but once
Linrad shows the frequency correctly any frequency shift
must be taken care of inside MAP65-IQ. There is Fcal and 
Fadd. Presumably you could also adjust Fadd.

Try to run the SpectraVue calibration. In case it makes the
SDR-IQ behave as if the sampling speed were exactly 66.6666666 MHz
and thus makes both SpectraVue and Linrad correctly calibrated
it would be better to leave caligration outside Linrad.
