Re: Radio static/Defroster

(WUNH only has one tower, and it is *strong* under it.  *way* strong.)

(Think Jammer here Joe...)

Hmmm, yes I can try to eliminate any square wave pulses from getting to the
defroster.  Easy enough to try a couple of simple filters at its connections
.  Thanks, I will report.  Regarding antenna amplifier issues - there is no
amplifier in this car, just an aftermarket power antenna running to an
aftermarket head.  I do worry about current sharing in the ground track
however.  Gotta look up the circuit.
