    Worth a look in on this forum - http://www.cbradio-forum.co.uk/
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    I have a couple of electronic "chokes" that I purchased for that problem with an iPhone and radio Aux - yet to put them on and try them. They just clamp over the electrical wires or antenna wire - concept is from back in the 60s.

    Interference could be entering radio(s) from several sources - speaker cables, power cables, or antenna lead.

    A good earth from radio chassis to frame of tractor can help as will installing ferrite rings or beads on all cables, with the rings wind the cable seveal turns, the beads clip on or thread through, the thread through type you can secure in place with heat shrink tubing.

    No offence meant, but your LED lights are of the cheap and nasty variety that leak RF. Buy better quality fitting. Chokes might help, but only a little.
