Thanks Josh,

Using 5Ms/s sorted this problem.

You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building. Around
you is a forest.
A length of co-ax runs out of the building and down a gully.

MB = megabytes
Msps = megasamples per second

Perhaps you are seeing the CIC filter rolloff. decimation =
100Msps/host_sample_rate. So for odd decimations, you get CIC filter and no
halfbands. Try an even decimation, you should see a flatter noise floor.
