Interference on My FM Radio

I have installed a new Jenson with remote. While at port under shore power, I will turn on my battery charger and hear my radio go into this static state.

Any ideas?

Thanks all,
Chuck

Were all the wires shielded?

Prosine? Mine generates massive hash well into VHF and beyond.

Maybe try building a box around it using somthing that will act as a shield like when using good audio cable.

Well,,, I work in audio/video, I can install plenum shielded wiring, but I never had this problem before, finding the problem is my first concern.

Grounded aluminum screen wrapped around the radio would shield it, but it the noise is coming into the system via the antenna or speaker wires, then trying to find the source is my first concern.
