IC-7100 noise from remoterig
« on: 2019-05-06, 23:40:30 »
hello,

just set up a IC-7100 with the remoterig. Serial 0300454 so used the additional board to be placed instead of the red strap at the control side.

The radio switches on but there is a tremendous noise, which increase if I turn any knob of the front panel.

I have tried to reduce the codec out gain as suggested in another discussion but the only result is that I have the overall volume reduced but with the very same noise.

Any suggestion on how possibly attack the problem?

Thanks in advance for any help

found out that the problem is generated by a switching power supply I've used to supply the remoterig unit.

Using a conventional one made the problem disappear.

I have nil idea on how that could possible happen...
