you might look at the wire routing to the freq counter. some times you ca reroute the wires from the others and the buzzing will stop. I had one a couple years ago that when you pulled the speaker cover the buzzing would stop and rerouted the wires and it fixed it.

Yep...I had a Galaxy 939 that had a buzzing sound...called Galaxy, they said to move the ribbon cable that go's to the back lit face plate away from the Mic jack (and wiring) and that should fix the problem..."It did!"

Wires ran next to the speaker or Mic jack can cause buzzing...Just cut the plastic tie-down loose and move the wires away from speaker wires and Mic wires.

The manufacturer made this ribbon originally with a ferrite bead on it but toward the last of production they got cheap and stopped installing them. You can install a snap bead, about 5mm on the ribbon and it will cut the buzz out completely, just be careful not to pull on the ribbon, it can be easily broken.
