AGCT, Volume, and BW Select controls behaving oddly.
I hope this is the correct part of the community discussion forum........
I have a 6600M. VERY occasionally, I have noticed that the ACGT, or the Volume, or the Bandwidth select decide to change values without any instruction from me! I use Smart SDR for Mac, with the front "maestro" panel of the radio clearly visible to one side of my vision. On the occasions that it does occur, I catch a glimpse of the maestro panel showing that the control is being changed (as would usually happen if I were to operate the controls myself with my own hands). I can stop the events from occurring if I rotate the appropriate knob to "override" the control. I find this quite disconcerting as for example I may place the volume at minimum, go elsewhere, and return to find the radio has helped itself to some volume!!
I restate that this occurs ONLY randomly, as I cannot put a finger on what I might be doing to cause this anomaly. The behaviour is akin to what you might find with a capacitative effect, as sometimes I can approach the front panel with my hand, and the control will either become activated, or not. It is completely random, but when it does happen my hand proximity is extremely sensitive. Apart from this oddity, the radio is behaving perfectly.
It has nothing to do with transmitting, as I am far more likely to be just listening to the QSO's on the bands when it happens.
Does anyone have similar experience of this? Have I got an earth-loop?
