Reviews and comments I've read about the rig state "somewhat noisy synthesizer".

If you've owned or operated one for any length of time: What effects have you observed which would indicate this?

Are there specific modes or bands which exacerbate the condition?

Any other operational quirks you've observed with the radio?

Only thing I noted in the 740 and not sure if it carried forward into the 745 was the processor or compression control, since tied in thru the IF path, can obstruct and affect receive.  I can't talk to the 745 but the 740 was known for a goofy processor switch/control affecting receive as well, sometimes muting the receive signals.
