I might be blocked by the thread police, but really, do need more information from you. Like what radio, antenna, frequency are you talking about. And extra should know this but I am new at ham radio so would like a little more information on the equipment you are having a problem with. Plus what are the setting in the radio, that is are there any tones set? Is it wide/narrow set? Once more information is known, someone may be able to offer a solution to your problem.

Given the information provided, I can definitively say that you perceive there to be a problem.

That's it.

If you would like a more detailed response, please provide more detail about the problem. The quality of the answer is directly dependent on the quality of the question.
