Thank you for the suggestion. I've pretty well isolated the RFI to the spark
plug coil packs that are on every cylinder. Unfortunately, I can't get to
them to add a ferrite as a possible solution. I'll speak with my mechanic
about the feasibility of getting to them.

the car and choking THAT. Use your radio and a piece of coax with a small
loop at the end as a sniffer. Good luck & 73, Tim W2UI
