Its because of Bad grounding or motor shielding. There really isn't much to this other than plug radio into another Outlet on a different circuit breaker. This is expected with small motors etc. Some leakage will occur, also your radio could be a lot more sensitive.
One thing you could do, Is visit a local radio shack and Get a ferrite core ring, and put your dremmel's power cord through it and see if you can eliminate it that way. to try and prevent electrical noise back through the power cord.

Good luck.

Crackles and pops when playing and even after it is turned off


UNPLUG the radio. Once you have gotten to the volume control spray contact cleaner, available at most radio shack or other electronic stores, into the switch. WD40 will also work. Clean up any excess liquid before plugging radio back in

Background noise problem with motorola radius cp200 and also crackling status during transmissions


Bill,
If the crackling and static are coming from the radio, it could mean 1) Something in your environment is putting out RF (radio frequency waves). 2) You have an old battery. 3) You are at the edge of the radio's range. 4) You have a bad speaker in the radio.

Possible solutions for you could be:
1) Have the radios reprogrammed to have Private Line (PL). This would block out RF noise on your frequency. Also, within the factory if there are devices putting out RF noise, there may be some solutions for them.
2) Replace old batteries. (Try a known good battery and see if it helps.)
3) Check to see if you have the same problem when radios are within a closer range. If it is a range problem, education yourself and other users to hold the radio upright (perpendicular) to the ground. You will get the best range. Tilting the radio can reduce range as much as 2/3s. Even the bodyfluid of a person wearing the radio can absorb range.
4) See if you have the same problem with another radio, or if the crackling static is just with the one radio. It may need repaired.

Another solution for you might be a noise canceling remote speaker mic. This would put the speaker of the radio up on your lapel. And these mics also have some noise/wind canceling ability.

There are a few programming things you could have your local dealer try. They may be able to tighten up the squelch and knock out some of the noise.

Best regards.

I have a yaesu ft-736r with no audio


Hi Jermaine,

It transmits, but no receive, are you sure, have you tried playing around with the volume control?

If, so did that make any crackling noise? If so, then this is due to lack of use of the volume control, many radios, including the old transistors with dials, would make crackling sounds when you adjusted the volume, and as I say, this is due to lack of use, So if this is the case and to get your receiving, turn the volume control up & down fully for a few minutes and while doing so your radio might receive a transmission that will be loud, quiet, loud, quiet, etc., as you play with the knob.

Keep doing so until all crackling has disapeared.

Do this often as possible when firing up your radio for the day, the more use these controls get, the better.

I hope this has answered your query.

Cheers,
Peter

My speakers will start to make a crackling sort of noise then stop. Sometimes the radio will not play at all. Sometimes the speakes make this crackling noise then they stop making the noise and play ok for...


Are your speakers factory? Sometimes the wires start corroding from moistures or from not being covered well. If you can or know someone who can, you may try checking the wires to the speakers/radio. If they are corroding, they may be shorting out.

Crackling Noise


I can't take credit for this because on found on a review on Amazon.Com, but I tried it and it works!

"Another update, for everyone who is having the common crackling problem, if you open the clock radio there is a black disk on the bottom with a red and black wire coming out of it. This black disk is a component called a piezo disk. They are commonly used to make noise for buzzers in electronic devices, but appear to have no use whatsoever in this clock radio. If you cut the wires going to this disk, the crackling noise goes away. You can still use both buzzer and radio alarms. There doesn't appear to be any functionality lost other than the annoying crackling sound. Obviously cutting wires would probably void your warranty, but do you really want to try your luck with another RCA clock radio? Chances are the crackling will happen again with the replacement or it will be DOA."

If you can handle a screwdriver and a pair of scissors, you can easily tackle this project, don't be worried about it being too complex. 5 screws, a snip, and you are all set. Make sure the radio is unplugged of course.

Car speakers turn on and off randomly and make crackling sound?


The answer is: "Yes." If your speaker wiring is such that they all share a common ground wire, and that ground wire is shorting out, it can cause all speakers to go silent when it is grounded (shorted). I would check the wiring, and replace any cracked wiring, and if the wiring looks like the shielding is worn, replace all the speaker wiring. Monster cable is the best, but any heavy copper wiring works fine. I often use 110V. appliance wiring to install car stereos.
