I suppose they could do that---provide a weak broadband source (say a
comb) combined with the antenna signal prior to the channel filters,
and provide a reference channel for this calibration signal to compare
against on-line.  Or they could calibrate just once at production
time, which would be less expensive---the system would then compensate
open-loop based on temperature.

Well, it would have to be the front end.  DSP doesn't drift with temperature.
