Default Similar setup, same issue, no solution

Been chasing the same problem and have tried all the suggestions above over last 7 years (560 hours). Dynon skyview with a G5, sl-30 radio, ps intercom, and aeroleds. Louder at higher RPMs and goes away completely if I turn off alt, or strobes, or intercom.

Rewired sections, added filter to leds, checked all ground paths...still haven't found the cause. Sorry I don't have a solution but it became hardly noticeable after the first 100 hours

How is your battery grounded?
Do you have the multi voltage Aeroleds? Allegedly they are “noisier” that the single voltage. Aeroled offers an upgrade program for these lights.

Default Grounded per plans

I bought the Van's FWF kit and followed their plans. Battery to firewall with #2 (I think) cable, braided cable and #2 firewall to engine block, field of tabs for all neutrals on subpanel.

Build was completed in 2013 and I believe the aeroleds are single voltage but not certain.

Good luck

Default Ground Loop

I opened this thread hopping to learn a little about tailwheel landings.

Definitely not that kind of ground loop.

If they are from 2013 they are multi-voltage. The single voltage units have linear current regulations so they cannot generate any high frequency noise...
