I think your cable is OK now.  The flashes might indicate interference
from other sources.  A monitor with a horizontal refresh rate close to
77 kHz could be a source of such interference, but many other sources
are possible.  You could try to find a location for the antenne where
the modulation led show a regular 1 second interval flash.
