Hello, I've been going absolutely crazy trying to figure out why my Baofeng UV-5R and UV-82HP pick up electrical/spark plug/ignition noise while in a moving car (any vehicle) while receiving a transmission, on both UHF and VHF. If you are stopped at a red light, no crackling noise. As soon as you get going again so does the crackling noise, completely disrupting the voice. Baofeng Tech is absolutely useless. All they do is copy/paste info from Miklor.com like I don't know that's what they're doing. Not to mention none of the advice even comes close to what I asked them. I found a section here at Radio Reference that mentions this problem but offers no solution. Here is the link Baofeng UV-5R - The RadioReference Wiki. If you look at the section under RECEIVER, you'll read about and see a link to youtube which demonstrates the problem. If anyone has a solution please let me know because I've searched the internet to no avail and it's getting extremely frustrating. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
