Probably not, it's coming from the injectors. You may be able to reduce the problem by adding screening and bonding but I've yet to hear of anyone curing it completely unless you want to go to extreme lengths. http://www.amalgamate2000.com/radio-hob ... erence.htm
my friend grafter, seems like you are using a very offensive tone in the reply.

Hi
One thing you can try is to get hold of a ferrite ring, wrap your power cable round it several times and position it as close to where you plug in the power plug to the rig.
