Just got new Yaesu FT-950. Got Heil Gold Line mic to go with it. Mic produces RF in radio. Any suggestions on how to solve the problem other than return the mic?  I am grounded properly.

It sounds like the  mic cable may be picking up rf and  introducing it back into the rig.  try some ferrite beads  and double check the grounds on the mic.  are you using the proper heil cable for the radio? you can always call heil, and see if they have any ideas, nice folks.

I had the same problem - ft-950 and pr-781. Had to rewire both ends of the cable. Problem solved.

How far away from your rig is the antenna?
