wiring p90 pickups?

I wired in two mean 90 p90 pickups to my tele. They came with 3 wires each, hot, neutral, copper. I have the hot and neutral wired, didn't do anything with the copper, I'm getting a hum from the pickups and every now and then pickup radio signals. what can I do?

You should earth the copper. As long as the rest of the circuit was done how I assume it was, earthing should be as simple as connecting the copper to the neutral wire which should be going to earth too.
Wait. Hot, Neutral, and copper? What brand are they? If youre picking up radio stations and hum then theyre not grounded right. Check the seymour duncan site, they have pickup wiring diagrams. -Buster
