Ummm... how about using mains power instead of
generating the juice yourself??  

Just kidding....but now that you mention the idea,
I'm wondering if I can mount my 706mkII on my treadmill.
What a concept!   

Seriously, we have a Nordic Track treadmill, and had it in 
the room adjacent to the ham shack in VT.  Never heard any
noise.  HOWEVER, we put an anti-stat mat under it, after the
sales guy said there was a fair chance of ESD buildup when
used over carpet.  

Is the noise characteristic like ESD, or motor brushes?
