NC Bill Posted April 10, 2012 Report Share Posted April 10, 2012 Sounds like a buzz. Not static. Both headsets. Starts off intermittent on departure climb with full power - almost thought it was Morse Code VOR id at first. Becomes more constant the further from airport I go. AND departure control gets increasing harder to hear. 15 miles out I completely lose ability to hear departure over the noise nor can they hear me. I turn back. Pick them up again in 2 miles. Approaching airport the noise subsides but doesn't disappear and voices return much as with departure sequence. Reducing power from WOT to 4800RPM also noticeably reduces noise. On the ground the noise is gone. The above has happened on the last 2 flights. So, near the airport, communication with tower & departure is possible. The noise is just very annoying. The noise finally overcomes the ability to communicate around 15nm out. The plane is always hangared and no mx or changes (except updating SKYVIEW databases) since the issue began. Any thoughts or ideas welcome. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
