Adding DC to your baseband signal will make the problem worse.

> There will always be *some* carrier leakage, you can reduce it by making sure that you've run the calibration utilities, which seek to optimize I/Q balance going into the mixers, and thus reduce LO leakage and image issues. Along with this, you can use offset tuning, which will move the LO leakage outside your passband: http://files.ettus.com/manual/page_general.html#general_tuning  Calibration notes here: http://files.ettus.com/manual/page_calibration.html#calibration_self  In made-for-a-specific purpose radios, the final mixer also has LO leakage, but in a traditional superhet design, that LO leakage is well outside the intended passband, and generally there's a filter before the final RF amplifiers that removes unwanted LO leakage and other harmonic mixing products. In a general-purpose, direct-conversion radio, that final filtering stage must necessarily be delegated to then end-user, since the precise filtering strategy is application and frequency dependent.
