This may sound too easy to be true, I've had loose and poorly made RF
connectors at the back of the transceiver cause that exact problem.

Sounds like either your truck is now resonant on 20M or something
connected to the display system may be.

I have taken the liberty of copying this to a couple of RFI lists
as that is likely to be the best place to find good answers.
