Airport Extreme - noises

My son, visiting and doing some needed telecommuting from here, is working in my home office area. My Airport Extreme (from 2010) is located on a shelf above the desk. Being less than half my age, his hearing is still much better than mine has become, and without tinnitus. He called my attention to the Airport Extreme, which he can hear emitting a nearly inaudible (to me) crickets-like chirping noise. He used his phone to record the sound and played it back at full volume so I could hear that it actually exists. Anyone notice this on their AP Extreme? After the last meeting, I've been considering replacing it, especially if this odd noise is indicating something going wrong and a sign of electronic old age.

If you do decide to retire it, I am interesting in getting the power supply for it. Let me know please.

Calvin,

I usually hang on to "real" transformer power supplies such as that. The switching supplies generate RF hash that messes up my radios. Still using a StyleWriter 12vdc supply and others separated from the equipment they used to supply. However, I will keep your request in mind!
