HMC439 with mixer and AD9914

I have a prototype with a HMC439 like attached image.

I added a mixer and an AD9914 DDS before the dividers.

My problem is when the output frequency is near integer values, I have big spurs.

For example, when I set 5500.1MHz, I have 5500.1MHz carrier and +/- 100KHz spurs.

I don't understand why I have spurs because the PLL works with integer values and DDS for fine values.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards.
