I am having a really hard time reducing/eliminating the static and noise coming through the speaker and mic in my truck I've tried everything. I drive a 1997 chevy pick up, 3500 series crew cab. I can't cut out the noise coming through the radio(s). HELP ME PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would help - a lot - if you:

a.  described your antenna installation
b.  told us what radio(s) you were using
c.  and on what frequencies and modes you wish to operate
d.  described how they are being powered
e.  told us what you mean by "I've tried everything"

on any mobile, ground the battery neg post to chassis, ground the radio chassis to vehicle , ground the dead side of antenna to chassis, ground the motor to chassis.  this is a good starting place.

It's important to know the noise you're hearing. I do have some sound files on my web site which may help you identify them.

There is also an article or two about noise abatement, and the required bonding, proper wiring, etc.
