    Something is acting as an antenna, possibly the mic or mic cable........ can you try a different mic setup? There aren't any settings in the driver that cause this or fix it. Also make sure everything is properly grounded, (system, monitor, etc.) and running off the same outlet. You may also have to move some equipment around as problems like this are very directional....... If possible try moving to a different place in the room, or even a different room if needed.

    I had this problem when a few years ago. The computer would only pick up the radio station once in a while. I would stop any recording projects that were going on and wait til it went away. Sorry that I cannot pinpoint something that I did to fix it.

    Do you get the radio station every time you are trying to record or just once in a while?
