I hav the same problem on both RVs with Icom A-210s installed. I have determined that the major cause of the open squelch is from the Skyview EFIS. With it off, squelch setting can be turned way down. Other sources are just minor contributors to squelch problem. See that newer generations of radios have auto squelch. In my mind this wouldnít really solve the problem as it just turns the squelch up until it doesnít break squelch automatically, so your reception range suffers. I am trying to figure out how to get the Skyview to live peacefully next to the Icom radio.

Iíd not worry about having Icom tweak the squelch. I had mine done and itís still every bit as sensitive as my 430W. I think Icom must know itís a bit on the sensitive side, but the fault does lie with the noisy EFIS displays, at least mine was.
