Hi John, 

Using all the common uhf/vhf bands in a Cherokee I can tell 
you there will be some minor (but strong) birdies at various 
vhf/uhf spectral locations. 

They appear to be computer software located so they do go 
away when some major operational parameters changes during 
your trips (travel). 

As an example... a birdie will pop up on a frequency but will 
probably not return to the same frequency the next time the 
vehicle is started. Relative to the overall operation, The 
birdie problem on a desired frequency is less than 3% of the 

I have yet to operate hf on the road from the Cherokee, which 
makes very a nice service/radio vehicle. 

The drive shaft and 4wd front knuckle U-Joints without 
grease fittings are/were my only complaint. I just had the 
originals replaced with new Spicer units, which have the 
much desired grease fittings.  Doesn't have anything to do with 
the radio, but what the heck...
