Sounds exactly like what I went through 3 or 4 years ago, and I tried everything that you have. I switched to resistor plug wires, and it was like a miracle....noise disappeared! Not saying that will cure your noise issue, but it was the answer to mine. I may still have a pair of noise filters that go on the P-leads if you'd like to see if they make a difference. Tried em and no difference, but maybe will work for you.

The noise has gradually gotten worse. I thought it was my old Valcom radio but I was wrong. The new Garmin is still noisy. So I have pulled the mag today to send it in for a check out and hopefully it will be the capacitor or points or something. If the mag has nothing wrong with it I will pull the B and C alternator to have it checked out.
The radio works great until I fire up the engine. Then it gets "Scratchy" according to tower and 2 ship with my hanger mate. In the past year I have reworked all of the grounds (pulled them all to the grounding buss by the battery). Reworked the ground to the engine and firewall. Periodically I have heard an arcing fazing noise in my headsets but it was intermittent. I have tried pulling breakers to isolate the cause but the radio still puts out noise. I get a slight improvement when I turn off the mag but the noise is still there.
With all that said it seems to be pointing to the mag. I hope to get the mag back next weekend so I can remount the engine and test it. Working long hours to try and make it to ORE.
Will let you know how it works out.

Is this radio noise new, or have you changed something? What's the background on the problem?
