Good Morning Edwin, I believe your correct after having exhausted everything that has been suggested. I moved the antenna around the truck on the roof but don't have the ability to move it elsewhere on this truck. The truck has protective non-metalic caps on the side rails/tail gate/bed has a bed li...

Hi Paul, Thank you for the suggestion listed above concerning my RFI issue. I would agree that may have to be the next step in resolving my problem.Would you agree after testing with no direct power connected from the truck that the issue is antenna related? It seems that something is backing throug...

Hi Jerry, The truck does have ABS and the Central Control System but I have no idea about the ASR. I tried another experiment this afternoon after finding that using an emergency battery and dis-connecting from the trucks battery. It didn't change a thing as far as noise while driving. I tried this....

Believe me, my current qth is DEAD on 2-meter machines. Factor in pro...
