What was the truck year, make, and model?

Where is the antenna mounted?  Where are the cables routed?  What power

Impossible to begin to determine the problem without all the specifics.


Sounds like either your truck is now resonant on 20M or something
connected to the display system may be.

I have taken the liberty of copying this to a couple of RFI lists
as that is likely to be the best place to find good answers.
