Radio Static

Radio Static

I have been getting complaints from the control towers that I am transmitting a lot of static when I contact them.  I have had the local avionics shop check my radio several times and they tell me it is ok.

It appears to be happening when I am at altitude and the rpm's are high.  If I pull the power back, the static diminishes. 

Any suggestions would be great.

Re: Radio Static

Thinking out loud here, but that sounds like what others have diagnosed as burned out diodes in the alternator.  Might be worth a check.  I don't know if the service manual discusses this, but I think there was something about measuring for AC on the DC bus.  If you find some AC it means there are some are burned out.  I think there are 3 or 6 of them.

Hopefully you will get another opinion here, because mine is probably worth twice what you paid for it!! ( 2 times zero is still zero! )

Good luck...

Re: Radio Static

Thanks Rod,

I will talk to my mechanic about your idea.  I have had all of the connections checked and the radio bench tested.  Running out ideas.

Re: Radio Static

Just visiting the forums and saw your post. Recently changed the capacitor on my 177RG alternator and found that cleaned up a lot of noise that effected the ADF low band. Not to expensive to try!
