Don't have any answers for you Bob but I am watching this thread. The microphonics on my '05 are terrible also. My '03 didn't have the problem.

Only possible solution I have heard about is replacemnet of the audio unit.

The audio unit acting like a microphone is a known problem with the '01 to '05 models. About the only "solution" I can suggest is to reduce the intercom volume and increase the FRS volume to compensate. When I'm using my FRS, I have the FRS volume at about 3/4 and the intercom volume at 8 or 9. I'm using Kennedy's FRSet and an Icom FRS, and it works fine.

Kennedy also has a vox set that will shut off the mic for the intercom that will take care of 95% of the noise. I've got an 04 with the frs set up and that is the only thing that worked.

If it's like mine and a lot of other people. It will come and go, just learn to live with it is my suggestion. Mine has done it 4 times, I don't like it ! But can't do anything about it, so I just flow with it, Per my bud in Woodbourne............ :)
