My friend purchased a Yaesu FT-DX1200 radio and a Ameritron AL-800 750 watt amp., when he went to use the unit he had a very loud noise coming from his Fios box, the box was not on, when he turned the TV on he had the same loud noise from the box that took out the sound but had no effect on the picture.
Any help about he could do to fix this problem.
Thanks
Bob

High level of HF RF is causing problems with the electronics in the FiOS box. Manufactures of entertainment systems are not required to design systems for high neighborhood levels of RF.

I would wrap all cables and power connection through large toroidal chokes. Use a type 43 material. RF is riding on the connection cables.
