Yeah, I know it is "supposed" to be connected straight to the battery. My wife told me it might help doing it that way. (She does radio maintenance in the AF) I figured you guys would be better equipped to tell the where the noise was coming from. (What component might be running, etc.) I have verified that it isn't the fuel pump, and apparently it isn't the vacuum pump (although maybe just to be sure i should diconnect it and try it out or verify that it does indeed stop running.) So what is left? Just plain old dirty power?
Also, just to clarify....it is bad to transmit without the correct load OR no load....but as long as you don't key the radio, no harm will be done. (Also, FWIW, my wife said it is worse to key a radio with an antenna connected but with a real bad SWR than to key one without an antenna connected....Doesn't matter though, I wouldn't recommend OR do either....lol)
