I had the same problem one time and it was caused by a corroded connection
on my rotor cable.
Turn the radio up so you can hear it and start moving cables and tightening
That's how I found my problem.

There is 1 on 1240 and 1 on 1340. I am about 1 mile from the one on 1240
and about 5 miles from 1340. I still think it is something in my antenna
somewhere because it is nil on the vertical. 73
