It has a bad resistor in the transmit section. When resistors go bad, the values change drastically with temperature.

Might need a tech. You need to test the resistors in the transmit section and then align the radio.

NOTE: The radio is going to act differently depending on temp. That is something you cannot get around. Temp effects resistors.

As well, It may not be the radio. It could be the vehicle. maybe something in the vehicle is causing the static and it goes away when the vehicle warms up.

Get or have someone Set the SWR's on your antenna.That is the first thing you should always do before even talking on the radio.. Check the antenna.
