Hi, VA7BDG. I had this problem a few years ago. My GM tube/USB interface kept getting high readings when I was on 20M. Solution was to make a Faraday cage of aluminium foil inside and outside the USB module ABS box, and add an extra layer of well-grounded coax shielding braid to both cables and the aluminium. Problem solved.

Thanks for your comments. My probe is in a copper foil covered abs box now. The last problem seems to have been caused by an old Codar CR-70A that used to belong to my late father (G4ZPV). I recently got it working again, but there was a problem with the break-down of the electrolytics in the power supply, causing pulses. Anyway I'm doing a total change of setup here.
