Those cheap Baofeng chargers also generate a lot of noise on 160. Was sitting here wondering why tonight my noise level was S6 when it was S2 last night. Unplugged that piece of junk and noise is gone.

Makes me want to throw the whole thing away, caused me a good 1-2 hours of frustration.

Often, making a toroid choke by wrapping about 14t of the cord around a
2.4" OD type 31 ferrite core will kill the noise.

It turns out the the XYL was using a new (aftermarket) charger for her
Galaxy Note 4 phone.  This one was really bad.
