Several folks suggested taking off the antenna connector to see if they are internal or over-the-air. Did so today, all are over-the-air. Weird that there are so many about 25-30 kHz up from a lower band edge. I am in downeast Maine, will check with a friend tonight in NJ to see if he hears same.
Thanks to all who replied

Probably coming in on an IF frequency?


Roger (K8RI)
If a birdie were coming in on an IF frequency, it would be there no matter where in the band you tuned. unless the receiver arrangement is such that there is a fixed conversion to a tunable IF--think of a 2 meter converter
coming out on 10 meters.
