Can anyone explain this behavior?

When I press the button on my stick, the static goes away. I'm transmitting from my Onyx to FM.

Video:

Sounds like something has become grounded.

Solution: just press the button all the time.

Videos like this do make me appreciate my built in XM.

IRBS's comment about something becoming grounded (or a ground getting disconnected) seems like the first place I'd check.
Have you added any new items to your car? (Different phone charger, etc.) Have you checked your antenna adapter? (Is that how you're broadcasting to your stereo?)
Is there a new FM station in town that's close to the one you use?

And isn't that bass line from Rio killer?

And, and, Channel Z is my favorite 2's song.
