relay/solenoid noise?

Along about the time my '81 Coupe gets warmed up, I start hearing frequent
clicks (sounds like a relay) somewhere under the dash. The click actually
interferes with the radio (i.e., the sound can be heard from the speakers as
well). My guess is that this is some relay or solenoid that has something to do
with running the electric radiator fan. Any ideas?

Also, I've just transplanted a perfectly good Sony stereo from my Scirocco into
this Coupe. Reception is very poor on FM and AM is non-existent. This is not a
problem with the radio. I've noticed that the rear-mounted antenna on the Coupe
is pretty short. I've also noticed that virtually all other Coupes I see sport
an aftermarket antenna. Is this a known bug?
