I have a 50w Vertex 2200 and have also used a 25w with same results. Every time you key up the mic, it causes the aftermarket gauges to go nuts. They read different until you let off the mic key, then resume to normal. It was so bad that when I had my antenna mounted in the back of the buggy, it would kill the engine while at idle. So, now I have it mounted on top of my aluminum roof to solve the engine problem.

I know it is a RF problem. I can take another battery with a spare gauge attached and it will move when I key up at 10′ away!

Has anyone else seen this problem? Any ideas to resolve the issue? I spoke to Rugged about it last fall and they had no ideas.
