Bob and Mark,
I've had a similar problem with my CB in the TD. I converted to negative
ground and installed a "cigarette lighter" socket under the dash to plug
the CB into, later installed something from radio shack that was
supposed to cut down on static and also put a remote antenna
magnetically mounted on top of the gas tank and have had no luck with
using the unit this way. I did install resistor plugs but nothing on the
distributor. Perhaps the type of plug wires(copper wire and not resistor
type) we use are a problem?
When I use the CD with the battery pack there is no problem at all.
BTW, this T-series list is almost too quiet. Maybe a lot of the T series
folks got disgusted as I did with the original MG list and got off of it
and don't yet know about this one.
