disconnect your internal speaker and see if it helps. Its a poor power supply filtering problem and it effects the speakerin many ways.check to see if it hums with only the external speaker attached.

Once its been hooked up backwards you have to change your diode in the radio,please do not keeping changing the fuse all you're going to do is mess the radio up worst,take it to a shop and let them repair it,and yes it is fixable if they tell you other wise get your radio and go to another shop.

Thats because your Rf is powerful on high settings..try taping a AM radio "ferrite bar" to your coax in the back of radio for "RF filtering". Keep your power supply 15 inches away from radio. I recommend unhooking talkback on radios (it always causes feedback). But make sure speaker is good distance from the radio. I'd say 10 feet or so, behind radio. Change external speakers or add one with a long cord.

Your radio needs an alignment to bring it back to specs . Check all the frequencies according to the manual and have a tech tune it for you .

If you want to talk on AM put it on AM if you want to talk on SSB then put it on SSB. Did you recently purchase this radio? You do realize you need a ham radio license to use this ?If you are on the upper ham bands you better have a license or they will come and get you .Look at the the dial that has 1 - 7 on it. Now take the owners manual and look at the diagram of the knob . It should say something about frequencies and the frequency you need to operate on is from 26.965 to 27.405 MHZ .
