   This is not a fault of the Omni VI. These are actual signals radiated by
the stations with the key clicks and they fall on the frequency to which you
are listening. There is no way for you to clean them up. I have the same
problem with a station on 14.448 Mhz that wipes out the upper end of 20
meters. I hear it on the Corsair II, the TS-130 and the Drake C line--not a
problem with the rig. 73 Jim K4CGY
