It is most likely common mode on the coax, in which case the RIGHT 
ferrite choke will work. Single ordinary snap-ons won't make a dent

chokes by winding turns around them.  

Study the applications note on my website on ferrites. What you need 
is one of the multi-turn chokes using #31 (best, but hard to find) 
or #43 (easy to find) on the 2.4" o.d. core. Figure the number of 
turns based on the data and the bands where you have the problem(s).
