If the signal that you are hearing is loud then it will probably be local to

I expect with newcomers to the band and those old timers returning there will
certain amount of adjustments needed like tuning carriers, swishing, dotting and
nervous fingers on keys. Dont let it get you down.
Try a spectrum analysis and see where these unstable carriers eventually settle
get a positive result then let us all know. Until then be careful who you
I think someone on here did suggest that there could be a person/persons
