What is the cause of tuning noise with V3.3.29 and can it be stopped?
I recently installed V3.3.29 in my 6600M and Maestro and the installation went without problems.
However, I notice that now, whenever I turn the tuning knob (either slice), there is a light "crackling" noise that corresponds exactly with the rotation of the knob. It is not very loud and, if this were an analog radio, I'd attribute it to a dirty sliding contact on the tuning cap. That's approximately what it sounds like. It seems to be band and mode independent. It is not loud, but it is annoying.
My rig is a 6600M with a PGXL and TGXL and except for the noise, seems to work fine.
