I had a similar sort of problem several years ago.  Tracked it down to a
little corrosion between my tower and guy wires.  Apparently that was
causing mixing of all sorts of signals which then gave me trouble on many,
many frequencies.

I like 30 meters cw and I like to shortwave listen. but not at the same

on 10.120 +/- I can hear all kinds of shortwave broadcasts, all at the same
time, with a sprinkle of CW from 30 meters thrown in for good measure.

can't hear the shortwave stations on the jupiter on the same antenna on the
same frequency in a A/B comparison

atten helps some but does not take out the broadcast completely.

yup! made sure the noise blanker was off... those things can cause all kinds
of critters to appear.
