[USRP-users] Calibrate tool not work

Um... you can't actually see anything with an external spectrum analyser 
"during" calibration; calibration basically is based on leakage between 
TX on RX on the same daughterboard, if I remember correctly.
After TX calibration, the image should be as good as gone. Since it is 
not affected, my wild guess is that it is not actually an image due to 
IQ imbalance.
However, the information you provided is a little to sparse for me to 
take an educated guess. Supply us with
- device type (USRP / daughterboard incl. version)
- signal type
- center frequency
- amplitude difference (in dB preferably) between original and mirror 
- theorethic/measured (by absfft plot) spectrum of transmitted samples
