Re: Hams -100W HF, cause problems?
Good advice above!
I run from 80 to 100 watts with my IC-7000 with no problems. I have the radio mounted under the drivers seat.
Run the power and ground wire direct to the radio. Do not use the vehicles wiring to power your radio.
As a precaution make sure you don't run your coax close to your FJ's computer. Sometimes if the ground isn't sufficient there may be some interaction.
A good ground is the key.
