SSB radio reception
 
Ihave an Icom 710 SSB installed within 2ft. of a Link 2000R battery monitor regulator. The Link appears to be the cause of RF interference that makes the SSB unusable when the engine is running. A Newmar suppressor has been connected to the alternator with no improvement. The RF interference stops if the Link display control panel is disconnected from the terminal strip. It is not possible to relocate either the SSB opr the Link. Has anyone out there any experience in how to solve this problem?

SSB radio reception
 
bob,
i have a sea 235r mounted next to my 2000r
and the ssb used to drive the 2000r nuts.
i mounted ferrites in the 2 cables on the 2000r and that solved my problem. they are available from radio shack.
you also might try adding a few ferrites on either wire coming out of the heart voltage regulator
i am sure that this can''t hurt.

where are you located?
eric
