Then this has got to be either antenna, signal path (e.g. reflections)
or dodgy electronics.  It can't be QRM (er, sorry, interference:) if
the 'noise' strength goes up and down with the signal - unless the
cause(s) of the interference respond(s) to your signal.  Why not take
the equipment someplace remote (say a few miles away) and try it there?
