With no antenna connected I get a signal at 14.240 MHz, I assume a birdie from inside the radio?

No birdies in the radio on the ham bands.

Perhaps it is simply an errant TNF. Try deleting or disabling TNF's.

a solid line implies a non-signal.

Also, a solid line does not automatically imply a "non-signal" : it could simply be a carrier.
nah ... there is a clear distinction between a 'solid vertical line' and a carrier above the noise floor shaped by filtering.
The original poster would be better served with a more detailed description of the system and what is actually displayed.

A picture of what you are describing would help.  It is really difficult to tell based on your description what you are seeing.

Thanks to all for your replies, I connected the Radio to a dummy load and signal vanished, I apologize for not doing that in the first place.
One thing for sure my 3 element STeppir W/6 mtrs is very sensitive.
Except for Europe from El Cajon Ca :-(
Once again Thanks
