Re: Bitx40 very loud, high-pitched, low frequency noise
I think that your comment about even on battery there is faint noise and it is near your PC is significant.Some pc's give out lots of hash or wine and I wonder if moving the uBITX further away may silence that last bit of noise.I am surprised that the capacitor combination on the output does not help,that has always worked for me as I proved by my test last evening on a randomly picked switch mode wall wart. Anyways it's progress in the right direction,keep the leads short and you will minimise pickup.A ferrite ring or two on the cables won't do any harm,the best quality power supplies usually have fitted on the DC lead to keep switching noise away from the DC output.

...Or a new / different power supply.
It would be interesting to examine the supply output with an oscilloscope.
