Couldn't hurt, (see my other note on op-amps as AM demodulators!)
It's probably layout driven, can you probe around with a spectrum analyzer
and see what surfaces? It may be that you can get 3-6dB just by re-routing
>3. Maybe something other than 79L06 would be better.
Hmm.. 79L10 followed by 79L06, with intermediate filtering?
Cheap, brute force, probably effective. Got that much headroom?
