There are more.

The solutions above include making sure that the N connector is well grounded to the case by scrapping paint from it, bypassing the DC line, and putting a 28MHz low pass filter in the IF drive line. But Bill’s suggestion to make sure all the mating panels are connected to each other is the best place to start. Let us know how it works out. - Duffey
