Anyone else have/had this issue and fixed it?

My XM rcvr, a Roady II, generates significant noise as heard via my 
IC-706 from 40m thru 6m.  The wider bandwidths are more impacted.  I 
hear no impact on 2m.  It typically adds a couple of S units.  When I 
put my hand over the front of the display, the noise goes down 
considerably but not all the way.  I suspect something related to the 
display or the back lighting.  I have another 2-way with a vacuum 
florescent display that causes noise, but I can turn it off and keep 
the radio on.

Thoughts, ideas or recommendations?
