Default Raymarine DS500 noise on VHF ch 65

I'm getting noise on my vhf, only on channel 65, and it's coming from my transducer on my DS500X. If I unplug the transducer cable the noise goes away. I'm not sure if my ff came with anything to put on any wires... and if it did I hope I can find them. Has anybody else had this problem?

Power hookup on same circuit? I had the same problem on all channels through my fishfinder. Shut off the fishfinder and it went away.

I run the GPS and FF off the same circuit, but I isolated the VHF. I did this also because I was getting voltage drops when I tried to transmit on high power (big voltage drops!). It might be related to the NMEA being hooked up, I'm not sure--but I think it started after that. They are hooked up to the same battery though, but the run from the fb to the bilge is seperate.
