You should try to keep the wiring seperated as much as possible. Run seperate jacked marine wire directly to the battery for your VHF. This will help alot.

The same holds true for the antenna wire. Keep it as far away as possible. If you can-run the antenna wire on the opposite side of the boat. The antenna should be a minimum of three feet from the radio and the cable not shorter than six feet.
