    My advice step one, replace RCAs
    step 2 replace head unit.

    I know, not what you wanted to hear, I'm sorry.

    I had a similar problem with my HU. Swapped RCAs and a bunch of other stuff. Moving the ground for the HU solved it for me. Have you tried different grounds for the deck?

    Bingo.

    This problem is a classic ground loop issue. The antenna is grounded to the car body at a different electrical ground point than the HU and amp grounds. These problems can be a nightmare to fix, but it always involves changing the ground point of either the HU or amp or both.

    An antenna filter ain't gonna help.
