Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Does the squeaking happen only when stations are tuned in?

I presume it only happens with Shortwave... if you can get other bands, does it happen with other bands' stations?

And if so, does it squeak 'with' the sounds, or independent of them or continuously?

Please describe the problem a little more.

Squeaks on stations

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

Try turning up the gain, then cup your hand over the microphone, and key the microphone.

Does the squeal sound, at this point?
