I used a 3' Firestik with an adjustable tip, put the SWR meter on it and got a great 1.5. It worked MUCH better than the fatory antenna that Harley put on. Although I had a grounding issue with my antenna that I cleared up with a short ground strap that I ran to the swingarm.

1998 ultra classic am/fm/cb radio works good except cb it receives excellent but wont transmit

More than likely the "Final Power Output Transistor" has been fried due to a bad antenna or no antenna on the radio when someone tried to use it.

If you know how to solder you can find a replacement transistor at Digi-Key, Mouser or JDR-Micro Devices.

Its a fairly common problem and easy to fix. good luck

I have an 07 ultra classic, purchased used, when I went to use the cb I was advised it was not installed and to see the dealer, is this normal for an ultra classic

If they are talking about installation, then yes! it needs to be properly set up to use, or you could end up blowing the rf transistor if match to the antenna is not correct.

I have weak talk back signal

Did you tune the antenna??

The antenna needs to be tuned for best SWR.

If the antenna is not the right length, then you will get signal reflecting back into the radio. this is bad and it can damage a radio.

The 29 has a built in SWR meter.

The lower the SWR the better.

Here is how to check the swr.

Turn to ch 20. Put the sf swr cap switch to CAL. Key the radio. With the radio keyed, turn the cal knob up until the meter is all the way to the right on the cal mark. with the radio still keyed, flip the switch to SWR. Where ever the needle falls is your swr reading. The top line is SWR. If it is above 3 this is really bad, and your antenna is no tuned and you are hurting your radio. You need to adjust the antenna length.

Turn to ch 1 and take an SWR reading the way I explained. Then do the same on ch 40. IF the SWR is lower on ch 1 then 40, your antenna is too short, make it longer. The antenna has a way of adjusting it. Usually the whip slides up or down in a colar.

If the swr is higher on ch 40 then 1, it is too long, and you need to make it shorter.

Keep making adjustments until the reading on 1 and 40 get lower, and are about the same.

Then check ch 20 again. It should be low, 1.5 or under. Then you are good to go.

you will find people hear you a lot better, way better then ever.

turn the mic gain all the way up. Make sure the antenna has been tuned for best SWR.

Take your radio to a CB shop and have them peak and tune it.

2005 Ultra Classic CB transmits fine, does not receive at all . Replaced headset and cables, no luck.

Have someone check your SWR readings (using a SWR meter) on the antenna. This should give you some information on reception.
