VHF popping

My VHF has a popping sound steady beat both sending and receiving. Thoughts?

Re: VHF popping

I have narrowed it down to the outside handset. No popping or sound issues on the main handset inside. I will take a look at the wiring this week (Tuesday) if I can't fix it I will order a new one... hopefully it is the handset, and not something the wiring to it is passing by.

Re: VHF popping

Try turning off everything you can and pulling every breaker you except the VHF to see if it is some close by interference.
