Feedback squalling from CB
A few weeks ago I had an issue where every time I keyed the mic with the PTT button, I would get feed back type squalling noise. I did a search here and found a couple of threads that pointed to the ground point in the trunk needing to be checked and cleaned. I did that and it cleared up. Today while on a ride with fellow GL1800 member it worked fine at first but then after a few transmissions I would still get that squalling but not all the time, just from time to time.
I am trying to understand what may be causing this, once we separated and I was on the road alone, I keyed the mic several times in various channels and never did get the squalling again.
What are the possible causes of this, would dirty or corroded contacts on the PTT button cause this?
I adjusted the squelch up and down did not seem to help, at one point I turned the intercom off, that seem to help but makes no sense so I am sure it was a coincidence.
