And yes I have been there and done that! Not the aerial , the CG bit
I drive my car all day but I don't really know how it works. What does 'noise' mean anyway? I've heard radio checks to our local CG that are weak but reported as 'noisey'. I think a third-party check of the guy's transmissions would be beneficial and could save him money.

Just a thought?..but can background noise also be from 'wind' or 'waves'


A bit like when you call someone on a mobile and they are using handsfree sometimes you can hear the road noise in the background?

Without this getting out of hand , am I right in thinking I could be getting noise due to battery lead being very close to aerial cable etc so if adding the ferrite where is it best place and is it worth sleeving wires too,

Just after sensible solution Kerny hence why I've turned to this forum, will try the idea of using another VHF and mate using mine to see if Cg was right if so then need to work out why there's background noise

well since you've asked three times in about as many hours I'm guessing someone will probably answer if they know. Although treating people like that wont help you make friends. Putting spaces between the letters doesn't make it any less offensive.
