-65 dBm is a pretty strong signal actually :)

It should be able to sync down to -105 dBm or so.

It's true and won't ever change ... it's a hardware switch, when you
plug something in the antenna plug, it disconnects the built-in

It's weird that the power varies so much ... it's also weird that it
even _tried_ to sync with a 22kHz frequency error ..
It might try to sync to something that's not a C0 ...

Try to force the ARFCN to a known good cell (that you get from a phone
with netmonitor) using the stick option.
