I second that suggestion. You changed locations, so the circuits your 
equipment is on now are different from before. If your circuits are 
shared with notoriously-noisy electrical equipment (washers, dryers, 
stuff with electrical motors in them, IIRC), RF filters and power 
conditioners will make the difference.
