MFD causing radio static
When I turn on breaker for E125 MFD both VHF and 2 Meter radios get some static noise. When I power up the E125 the static noise gets even worse. When I hit the mic key on my VHF it stops the static on my 2 meter radio for a minute or so then it comes back on. Started having this problem when I added a second MFD. Any suggestions ?
I tried a power filter on both radios and it did not help. Tested breaker switch and it's fine. Running out of ideas.

RE: MFD causing radio static
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Defiance Sportfishing,

Please click here to view a thread addressing this subject. In this case, it would be recommended that ferrite bead RF chokes be installed as close as is permissible to the MFD Power/NMEA 0183/Video Input Cable's plug. Should this not resolve the problem, then it is recommended that the MFD and its Power/NMEA 0183/Video Input Cable be sent to latest available Raymarine product software updates to be bench tested/serviced.
