Flex 5000 International Shortwave Images and others

I have recently installed a very high efficient antenna. I now notice at night and in the morning I can clearly hear International SW stations on CW band of 40 M and 80 Meters. If I turn on preamp they go away at the cost of higher noise floor.

Also on 7194 I hear a local 1 KW AM station on 1050AM clearly. It is about 5 miles from here.

Are these images normal with the 5000?  I also hear them on my second RX but if I go to my old lower ant I am unable to hear them but still see their carrier.

Just curious

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
