This is not normal. Either you are magnetic, or you have some kind of RF reflecting off you. Or something like that. This is strange to me.

think cheap.first change the mic to see if that makes a difference. If it does you now have a new mic and a radio that works.Now it gets a little more expensive. you have to open the radio so the components show . Now ask yourself which one does what ? I know you can't answer it because if you could you wouldn't have posted this. I can tell you that its in your audio circuit . Now take it to a tech and have them fix it.

If you have no channel display or CB operation, it sounds like a blown voltage regulator that supplies power to the CB PLL circuit.

If you are using the radio on a boat, then no, the grounding does not matter that much. However, an SSB transceiver would be hassle to install on a boat because of the amount of power they use to transmit. If the transmission is bad, try using the radio's internal tuner instead of the separate tuner. This may help improve the quality of transmit, however, some radios have a tough time clarifying incoming and outgoing signals and create a garbled sound when it receives a signal or when it transmits. If that doesn't work, then you can try grounding. But if you want a radio that doesn't require all this nonsense tning, you might want to think about investing in a Yaesu. They are pricey, but are one of the best HAM radios.

If you want to talk on AM put it on AM if you want to talk on SSB then put it on SSB. Did you recently purchase this radio? You do realize you need a ham radio license to use this ?If you are on the upper ham bands you better have a license or they will come and get you .Look at the the dial that has 1 - 7 on it. Now take the owners manual and look at the diagram of the knob . It should say something about frequencies and the frequency you need to operate on is from 26.965 to 27.405 MHZ .
