Re: "Radio Noise"

I think those of us who have this problem must not have not clearly
the conditions under which the noise occurs.  In my case (and HKravec
I have exchanged email on the subject) the noise is not really speed
It NEVER occurs while coasting or under significant acceleration.  It
occurs when the accelerator is very slightly "open" -- at the point that
speed is just maintained.  To me this means it's related to either 1)
vacuum, or 2) torque somewhere in the drive train.  There are certain
speeds at which the noise is more noticeable.  

My car has no speakers in the dash, yet the sound source seems to be
located in or in front of the dash.

I guess maybe you have to experience it to understand why we
think it has nothing to do with the radio or speakers.  It 
is certainly perplexing.
