      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Interference on AM radio from Sonar/GPS??

Recommended Posts

I would like to listen to the Twins but have so much interference from my eletronics I have to turn off my GPS. You guys have any ideas?

My first idea is that it'd probably be a lot better if the Twins were still on WCCO (better signal).

What you're getting is electrical interference ---- try moving your am antenna away from your gps and see if that does it ---- try moving the power wires for the radio away from the power wires for the gps and see if that does it. A lot of times moving them an inch or two will make all the difference in the world. Good luck getting it figured out.

I was out in a buddy's boat yesterday and we couldn't get the game on his radio if his bowmount was running or if the boat was turned in the wrong direction --- but I don't think he had much of an am antenna.

I'm with you too on this one. I get interference from my Eagle 640C in the boat, in the winter,(late ice, sunny day, listening to a spring training game is very nice in my book) it comes from my LX-5.

I have to shut off the sonar if I want to hear the game clearly. I fish at Mille Lacs occasionally and can pick up the Twins on an FM station out of Brainerd. That comes through nice and clear. Check you area, perhaps an FM station is close enough. The antenna of my boat is inches from the sonar unit. Not much I can change about that. I hope I locate some fish before the game gets to interesting. On a nice weather day, fishing with the game on,,,,,,,,,,very nice! Makes me glad I do this.

Try putting a sheet of aluminum foil between the antennas if you can't move them. One day out on the water with an old radio it was picking up interference from the trolling motor, so when speeding up the frequency would increase of the noise, and slowing down it was like the cartoon falling bomb sound effect. We changed to a wire loop antenna radio and fixed the problem.

You can add a ground interference insulator to the radios line, that will cure it. Most stereo stores will have them or drop in at Radio Shack.

I just noticed this while using my H20 in my truck. When I unplugged the external H20 power plug from the truck's power oulet, the interference noice on the radio stopped. So, I assumed corectly that it's a power interference issue. I don't use it often enough to worry about it, however.
