Radio Noise-Original AM
This just started yesterday. I recently re-capped my original AM radio and it has been playing great. Yesterday, I started hearing a motoring sound, not a whine, coming through the radio especially with the AC compressor on. Talking gets a bit distorted too. There is no noise or distortion when the engine is not running. There is a radio suppressor next to the voltage regulator that I substituted a .5 mf cap with but there was no change. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks, ,Cliff
PS: The noise may coincide with the repair I made yesterday to the amp meter wire near the starter solenoid. The noise is not a RPM whine and does not change with engine speed. Also, it was doing this before I snapped the mast off of my antenna which I also repaired. Reception is very good and I have adjusted the trim on the radio. FYI: I do not have the rear mounting strap on the radio. It was missing. Possible bad ground?
