The power and ground go straight to the battery.Where did you pick up the power and ground?
He wanted the antenna in one particular spot...he's weird like that.Next time take down one of the dome lights and drill above it then fish the cable across to save the time of removing the headliner.
We found that the noise isn't the ignition, it's being caused by the alternator and it's only on RX.Nice install, Nice to see it wasn't just thrown in. With the ignition noise its a pain on HF. I know when my step father was installing his FT100D he ended up doing a lot of grounding. Now do you get the ignition noise on RX or when TX or both?
When I used to work for a radio shop we had issues with M1225's in school busses, we would install a kenwood KLF-2 filter.
I got little less noise in my radio, in my previous vehicle, when I ran every thing to the battery. I replaced the battery, in that vehicle, with one that had top and side mounted posts. I tried connecting all my radio stuff to the side posts and the vehicles connections on the top posts and got a LOT less noise in the radio even with the squelch all the way down. Still had a little but it was barely noticeable.Ground the radio closest to the radio it`s self not to the battery that will take care of the alternator whine.
