I solved this problem (Hi, I use a Scout 555 and have been keeping on cw
lately.  I usually use head phones.  When I increase my power past 20 watts
I hear a buzzing in the background as I transmit.  The buzzing shadows each
of my dits and dahs.  To me it sounds like the radio is under some sort of
stress so I keep it under 20 watts on cw.  No problem or strange noises on
ssb.  Any spare knowledge would be greatly appreciated.) by putting a
ferrite block (they open up, you put a few turns around the core and then
it closes, making good magnetic contact, from rat shack) on each wire from
the PS, as close to the 555 as possible.
