Kinda more or less known; different screen refresh and or resolutions have been known to "shift" those frequencies too. If a fave freq is blocked by a birdie, try making a change in the above mentioned parameters.

Hmmm...well, yesterday, I found that a source of RFI on (at least) 40 meters is the desktop 
computer sitting on my operating bench. RFI changes with changes in the "scene" on the 

Turning off the 'pooter resulted in noise level dropping to S-1 (transceiver in narrow CW) on 
selected frequencies.

I'm not sure at this point how to fix this, but I'll be working on it.

What brought it to my attention was a weak but steady carrier on 7053, which would 
disappear when I changed to a different piece of software on the 'pooter.

Sigh.... :-(

If it isn't one thing, its another.
