Hmmmm, verrrrry interesting. My first thought was to reply 
and say mine was quiet but then I decided to check it out since 
10 meters has been dead since I got my VI. 
With the settings as you specify, I have birdies all over the 10 meter
band (every 5 to 10 Hz). Most are S3 to S4 with a ticka ticka sound
within the birdie.
Most of this almost disappears with an antenna connected but you
can still hear them about S0
Wonder what this is? Is it going to be a problem later?
