My TDS210 has an extremely stable display, even at the max sweep speed.

Of course, the vertical amplifier has the noise you would expect from a broad band amplifier, and if the signal is too low, that noise will contribute to some jitter, but 200mV at 10MHz will show a very stable display on my scope.

Try to get another method for confirmation, like a ham or broadcast receiver that can tune 10 or 20 MHz

Artifacts from the TDS210, not from the Rb.
