Hi John,

Just checked both freq's on my O2 and do not hear anything. I tuned both sides of those freq's.

No antenna attached and preamp off, Rf gain at 100. I would guess that it is something internal.



Is any other O2 user detecting this? I was going to call it a heterodyne
but that might not be the right word... just a steady CW-like tone.
Using LCW and tuning up, it first becomes audible (to my ears) about
7030.100 and I can last hear it at 7030.700. On 20m, the audible tone is
14030.060 to 14030.700. It's plenty strong enough to interfere with CW
signals on this popular frequency. I do not hear it on 80m or 10m.
