    Noise on some freqs but not on others or worse on some, is a fairly common complaint. Electrical signals spill over onto other frequencies when they get powerful enough. And they get worse on...

    I disagree with using filters. Magnetos, alternators, etc, in good working condition won't make enough noise to warrant filters. If an item is generating electrical noise, fix it. Filters simply mask...
