No "big problem" at all. This is a down conversion rig, and you're tuning across the IF frequency of the rig (9mHz), so you're hearing exactly what I'd expect you to hear. If you want complete general coverage, you need to use an up-conversion rig. This is the price you pay for good close-in strong signal handling (3rd order IP). There's no free lunch. You pay for your good close-in strong signal handling, by having poor image rejection, and garbage around the I/F.

Just purchased one. A big problem found in the rcvr section. At a hro store in 
the bay area I was tuning thru the shortwave freq's btwn 8-10 MHz. I found am 
signals from abt 8.8 to 9.1mhz.  These were cb signals ie 9.024 MHz was from a 
signal at 27.024 MHz. And these were not local, but from the Midwest and east 
coast. Once you got out of the range of 8.8-9.2 MHz . This problem disappeared. 
Use of the ipo and attenuator functions. Would reduce, but not get rid of. Note 
antennas used a tribander with 40 meter add on. Another radio (mine) had same 
problem. Somthing in the rcvr bp filters is not right, heads up. Yeasu called 
awaiting a answer. 73 John. Wa9dgm
