Hi Roger,

no, I don't have an rfi issue, the mouse & kb have ferrites & the pc is grounded to the single point station ground.  I have also swept my for stray rf with a field strength meter - nothing at all, anywhere in the shack!

I am not sure how the mouse pad has or could have any effect, as it's 100% non conductive - it's silicone/gel.

I have one further suggestion.  Have you checked that your mouse or pad
is not subject to RFI?  I have a USB mouse that produces left clicks on
80m and top band.
