    So I've used a seperation kit for the Yaesu 7900r, putting the radio under the passenger seat, and thought of instead of mounting an external speaker, I'd just connect it into the Auxillary Port on my car radio.

    Well I've ran into two issues. The first is if I turn up the radio any, I get the engine hum, so where would I place a ferrite? On the speaker cord, power cord, somewhere under the engine???

    The second issue is if I key up the microphone to talk, while talking, the radio switches over to FM/XM Radio and when I'm done switches back to Aux. Any thoughts, suggestions, tips?

    Am I also pooping on the party if I say don't touch a plate cap with your tongue? Or stick your fingers in a wall socket?

    Much better to show someone else how to do it.
