Q & A

hi fi

I have a steel boat with an ordinary hi fi however when using the radio I get interference what can I do to stop this

WW says:

Is the interference when the engine is running or at other times? And is the hifi a 12V car-type unit, or mains powered one? And if mains-powered, is it from a landline or an inverter... as some basic (quasi wine-wave) inverters can cause interference as the waveform causes issues with more delicate appliances. Otherwise it might be hard to pin down the cause...

What sort of aerial are you using?

Readers say:

interference is not when the engine is running. it is not a car radio it is a normal domestic type. it is run from a land line however we do have an inverter. we are not using an aerial would that stop interference if so what type of aerial would we need
