Default VHF noise and plug question

I have a 1997 merc 115hp that I took out today for the first time since I changed my plugs. I called a few marine repair yards and they told me the correct plug to use for my engine is an NGK BP8H-N-10.

So I picked up 4 of these and installed them. Engine runs much better but now I'm getting noise through my radio from the motor. I was reading about this and someone recommended to get resistor type plugs.

Are the plugs I bought these resistor type? If not, which ones do I need to buy?

Any advice on getting rid of the noise on my VHF?

Thanks

Only way will be to get resistor plugs or wires. Without them you have created one of the first modes of radio communication - Spark Gap.
