AF Changing Without Touching the Knob

This morning, my AF started changing on its own (running from the front panel).  I was not touching the rig when I noticed the AF indicator on the screen intermittently increasing and decreasing.  I moved the AF encoder back and forth a few times and it hasn't happened again.

Has anyone else experienced this?

    I heard there was an apparition of Patrick Swayze in David’s shack at about the same time. Coincidence?

    Thanks, Tim.

    George - Patrick Swayze, really?  It was actually Marilyn Monroe.

    To All: I too, have experienced having both the AF gain setting and the AGCT setting on my 6600M front panel change randomly without me touching the front panel. It was almost as if someone had remotely logged into my radio, but I don't have the Flex server activated on my 6600M. It doesn't happen very often. The last time it happened, I was monitoring an FT8 slice and had the AF gain turned down to zero. I was in another room and suddenly heard FT8 tones from my monitor speakers. When I check the 6600M, the AF gain had changed from zero to 85 while I was out of the shack. 73, Geoff-W8GNM
