Mic cord picking up local AM radio station

I extended the mic cord on my Yaesu FT-2400H. Now other people hear a local
AM radio station when I transmit. What should I do?

Don't extend the mic. cord.......

seriously try a better system ground.  Or maybe even no ground.  Some
toriods on the cord may be needed also.

Or for a quick try...if you have a old AM radio around just wrap a few turns
of the cord around it.  See if that helps by 'de-tuning' things,
