  • Radio static when welding.

    When I'm welding pipe from my rig I like to have my radio playing. Problem is, soon as I strike an arc the radio goes all static. What on my Vantage could be causing the problem and can it be rectified?

          Welll, yeah, thats how the Lincoln chopper works to smooth out the arc, didn't notice that slight screetch noise when you stike an arc. You didn't wonder where that came from.

          Sooooo put your radio back farther

            Aaaah yeah, that squeak noise when I strike an arc has been a question of many a helper but I never knew the chopper tech. was behind that. Unfortunately, placing the radio further back will require a volume increase and that could be a distraction to others(safety concern I'm told) on the jobsite. Thanks for the info cruizer. I should of figured you'd have the answer to that one.
