I have a new Garmin VHF. When I'm under way and I try hailing

Customer Question

I have a new Garmin VHF. When I'm under way and I try hailing another boat there is so much interference that they can't hear me. I can hear them but there is a lot of static. This seems to happen when I have my starboard engine on. The port engine seen to have the same affect.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?I didn't quite catch the last part of your question. Are you saying the static only happens on the starboard engine? Or does it happen when either engine, starboard or port, is running?
