HI Herve.

One of the first things to ask the person who gives you a bad
report is if they have their noise blanker on.  Loud signals will
sound very distorted if their noise blanker is on.  Is the new
antenna closer to your radio than the old one?  You may be
getting rf into your system somehow.  GL
