Since we are guessing:
Si5170 is defaulting to 7.05 and these are VEs on 40 meters.

Now, I am not aware of a new band just yet, although that would be a nice frequency, and we are thinking it must be an image or artifact. But these are different from a superheterodyne, right, and the typical "image" from the IF frequency and mixing, would not be present... am I right?
