If you're connecting the black wire from the voltmeter to a good ground, then yes, it would. My point was that perhaps you're not grounding those new radios properly.

Well I'm connecting the voltage meter and the old radio to the exact same ground wire I'm using for the newer radios. I suppose the ground wire could have some sort of issue with only newer radios, but the first radio I connected before the fuse blew turned on.

Zound? Is it zound? I was never good at scrabble.
