If I understand you correctly I don't think this will be as big a problem as you think IN THE FIELD - try it away from home and if you still have an issue call Steve Lea - telephone no on the Marshal Europe Website.

The 'modem' type noise is probably some kind of external interference. There is quite a lot of interference on 173MHz around where I live. I think its electric alarm systems and automated garage doors etc.

Ring Stephen about the tag - I think they can re-program them to transmit on a different channel if necessary.
