Default NOISE ON VHF

Just got a boat (225 Aquasport Explorer 97).
I installed a new VHF and a new antena. When using the depth/fish finder and the VHF is on you can hear the transducer pings can be heard on the VHF. Can almost make it go away with the squelch control, but I know this is not normal. I'm looking for sugestions on a cure.
Keep those hooks sharp!!!

ocl,
Had the same problem and installed rf chokes and the little transformers that were shipped with my FF (Raytheon) onto the transducer cable.
If the problem persists there are toroid coils you can try to install too.
I tried the powerline filters in the 12V line but didn't have any luck with that but the chokes helped out alot.
Try the Radio Shack for chokes and coils.
I didn't have to do this but seperating your coax cables might help you and also try connecting the units direct to a battery to see if that helps.

If for some reason Booby Trap's advise does not work...try a separate battery for the sounder or VHF.
