Re: ICOM IC-A24 Picks up noise - JHP-520 doesn't?
I tried to use an Icom handheld to ferry our cub home from NY to Daytona Beach. Nothing I tried would get rid of the interference. Even after I got her home and rebuilt both mags, brand new sheilded harness, new plugs, a new noise filter cap on each mag, still unusable. However, when I ran the proper shielded P-lead wire from the mag switch to the mags with proper grounding on the shielding it is crystal clear. Now I have a Flightline FL-760 mounted in a box I made with mike jacks and a battery in it using an Advanced Aircraftg Electronics VHF-5T antenna mounted on a 45 degree angle in the empennage. Awsome setup. The FL760 has a built in 2 place intercom and I can talk to anyone no problems. Will run all day off the battery, probably more than that but it gets plugged in at night.
