I am trying to figure out why it does this,.. seems no reason, even when not in use. Beacon is set to a huge value, this is not the beacon.. it's something else.

Ok, so I think I got it figured out..

Having a reduced TX power router causes this issue.  The querying devices in the area send a probe request, to which the router cannot respond due to low power.  It re-tries about 5 times, then it raises the TX power automatically .. so that's what the squeak on the meter is, multiple frame responses.  I used CommView to capture it.

Unfortunately when reducing TX power, RX sensitivity should be also reduced, but it's never done.  

This leads to tons of these chirps.. I will try to find what frequency of the re-try rate is, but my guess is that it's in the biologically active range.
