On further thought, I may not need the sampling T and RX2!
What is needed is a highly attenuated signal from the PA output, and
it does not need to have a BPF (as all other signals are OUTSIDE of
the SR enclosure). So the receiver only need to sample the attenuated
PA signal. The receiver OPAMP will not need to have any gain, but the
LPF function will still be needed to limit the I/Q output to < 200khz
