Based on how you described the situation, I don't think I have had that experience. However, based on your post, I went back and looked more closely at it. I find that the FM icon is done in fairly light blue and, like most LCD displays, if I am looking at angle an down at it everything looks washed out. I have to tilt the cover of my CB all the way back to get a normal looking screen. The already light blue FM icon seems more sensitive to that than, say, the dark blue Weather Channel icon. May this be what you are experiencing...almost a ghost of the icon?
