I just started flying the RF-4 I recently bought. The previous owner just had Trig radio fitted and I am not sure if he flew with it. I just had the magneto overhauled.
When using the radio I have massive interference and I am pretty sure it comes from the magneto as the radio works fine when the engine is not running and when the engine is running the inference becomes worse as I increase throttle. It also impacts handheld radios if kept near the aircraft.
Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem? Is anyone using a magneto noise filter and is there enough space to connect it to the bendix mag? Anything else I should try first?
I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
