I just have the rubber handheld that came with the cb...do you have a regular antenna or handheld
most likely the SWR is bad did you set the tune on the antenna
Thanks for all the advice. I am going to try this one first...and see what it gets me.FireEater,
It will help some if you try to isolate the source of the squeal. Remove the CB from the trike and any external wiring and see if you still have the noise; if so it's in the CB not the bike.
If no squeal, start connecting the CB back to the bike (not running) check for the squeal. If no squeal, crank the bike check again for the squeal. If no squeal then try with bike at highway speeds.
If I had to guess, I would suspect that some of your wiring (headset/power) is picking up alternator noise. If you are hardwired for power, an old CBer's solution was to run a shielded cable (antenna type cable) direct to the battery; battery served as a filter.
I do not hear a whine when listening, I send out a whine when talking I am told.I use the Ground Loop Isolator that would plug in-line with the speaker of the headset to remove the electrical whine. The one I use is from Electrical Connection. Also great if you use an MP3 player that charges from the bike. My Lowrance GPS that has 4 Gig of MP3's would always whine when I used my helmet setup. Plugged the isolator in-line and all that whine is gone. :lol:
