I do not have an SDR-IQ, I only have an SDR-14. The SDR-14 is
max 180 kHz or so according to RFspace specifications. 
Based on experience a long time ago I have set a limit at 260 kHz.
The highest speed I could use on my Pentium 4 was about 130 kHz.

I made a test today - and now I can run the SDR-14 at 222 kHz
without any problems so I have changed the limit to 500 kHz.

In Linrad-03.07 it is a define in sdr14.c:
#define MAX_SDR14_SPEED 500000

I do not know exactly what changes that have made it possible to
run the USB faster, it could be a more modern kernel or something
I did in Linrad. Anyway, the speed is now much higher than expected:-)

Please change 260000 and 300000 in sdr14.c at lines 507 and 880 to 
something higher and check where the limit is for SDR-IQ on your
computer. In case it is much above 250 kHz I will make the
tests different for SDR-14 and SDR-IQ.

(Old Linrad versions did not check the nominal speed and much
too high values caused hard to understand crashes for newcomers.)
