to be honest i found the answer on this site:

Can i install a ham radio onto my gl 1800

Being a Ham Radio operator for more years than I care to admit, and starting to ride longer trips by myself, I decided to put a 2-meter FM Ham Radio on my 2006 Gold Wing. The advantage to Ham Radio is that it?€™s very possible to transmit over 100 miles using a repeater system. I thought it would be good company on my solo rides.

I had a similar set up on my GL1500, but my new GL1800 offered a unique set of challenges. Shallower pockets and more electronics caused transmit and receive interference, which all had to be worked out. I decided to mount the radio near the handlebars and just put it away in inclimate weather. Also, each time I stopped the radio would have to be removed to prevent theft.

First came the antenna. I took apart the am/fm radio antenna at the top and removed the cable. This was just a matter of driving out the drift pin. I took a double SO239 connector (a barrel) and, on my grinder, started turning half the connector until it just fit inside the bottom section of the am/fm antenna shaft. To this connector I soldered 10 feet of RG8U coax.

Before inserting the connector I drilled and tapped the holes from the drift pin to 8/32 so I could use a couple of small setscrews to secure the connector in place. The bottom half of the antenna holder is stainless steel so it is plenty strong. Then I ran the coax under the seat, top shelter, into the left fairing pocket, and up the handlebars. Cutting off the excess cable and soldering a PL259 connector on the end.

I chose a Diamond NR-770RA antenna. This antenna works great with little or no ground plane, has a PL-259 type base, and folds over in the middle like the stock Gold Wing antennas. It even looks a lot like the Gold Wing?€™s CB antenna.

Under the seat I installed an antenna combiner for the CB and the am/fm radio. That way the CB antenna serves both radios. These combiners are available on the internet. I tuned everything in using the tuning screws on the combiner and my SWR bridge.

I mounted my 2mtr radio on a Ram Mount. I fabricated a small custom bracket for an external push to talk, and a scan button. From the mike connector I picked up speaker and microphone signals. A single throw/four pole switch and I was able to switch from the bike?€™s regular cb/stero to my Ham Radio.

This project took about two weeks to work out all the kinks. The installation is clean, safe and works well. Cost with do-over, but not counting radio and antenna, was about $50.00.

Will not function with batteries when adaptor is removed. New batteries have been installed

Make sure that you have installed the batteries with the plus end of the batteries in
the correct orientation. This usually solves the problem. If the batteries do not make
the radio work when properly installed (and the batteries are new) you have a problem
that may be resolved under the guaranty that comes with the radio. Make sure the
batteries are good by testing them with a meter or in a flashlight.

I purchased a brand new Grundig G6 radio a few days ago. Both AM & FM worked fine until yesterday. FM still works fine but now the AM is totally dead. What's the problem? Thanks, FELIX

I can't solve it. Mine has the same problem. At least we've established that there is a run of bad chips. I will be able to exchange my radio for a new one, but why bother if there is a production problem. I might upgrade to another model.

Sad. It's a fine little receiver.

My ICF-SW77 quit picking up on AM as well as FM. Then all of a sudden every thing works well for some time. Worked well all night, but this morning a tried to tune a new station and now again no pick up on...

Possible poor contacts in radio, as they age this happens. Could be one or more bad capacitors, same age problem. I do repairs on these radios, email me on this .... Rod ( )

My antenna broke, i purchased new antenna but when I tried to install new antenna the old antenna fell inside of radiio, I took out all the screws but still cannot get radio apart

On the back panel, there is a black decal located near the center. Warm this decal with a hair dryer (warm it, don't get it hot)Slip a knife blade under the right side and lift it up. Remove the hidden screw under the decal, and the the other five and the back will come off. replace the FM antenna and you are good to go. I had the same problem. mcarmich

My sony icf 7600 have speaker on sound when i turn on my radio,but it can not catch any AM or FM channels.where is the problem, and is it can be one know about it in my country Pakistan?

Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.

Does not receive FM signals anymore, just noise.

The T6310 is a disposable radio. Assuming the programming is correct, and matching on each of your radios, and you are using good batteries, there is nothing which can be done to correct the problem. We would however, suggest you double check your programming, and also the age of your batteries.

Sidenote: Rechargeable batteries only last 18-24 months before they begin to fail. Signs of failure can include, but are not limited to, poor transmit, intermittent transmit, white noise, squelching sounds. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so your transmit would be the first to go.
