Q re: CB radio Empty
PostSubject: Q re: CB radio   Q re: CB radio I_icon_minitimeThu Jul 21, 2011 7:30 pm

Hi all. Have been participating in quite a few Patriot Guard Rider missions lately (the only "scooter", but that's another story) and I'm beginning to feel that having a CB radio along would be good, particularly for escorts. I did a little search here, but didn't come up with much specific information.

I'm a radio geek (W6LPH), but I have not installed a radio on a motorcycle. I'm not envisioning a permanent installation. I'm thinking about a temporary installation, to be used for the escort missions, but not normally kept on the bike. A handheld radio with battery power and a "ducky" antenna and an appropriate helmet headset would work fine for the short distances involved. Anyone here:

1. Have a CB on their machine? Details, please...
2. Know of a CB handheld which would fill the bill? Installation details, please.

Also, anyone note any major noise generators on the Silverwing (regulator/rectifier, spark/ignition noise, charging system whine, etc.)? If so, how did you overcome these problems on this machine?

Thanks in advance for all response...

Bob

QSL...understand your point. Wouldn't ordinarily run with an active radio on the bike, although in addition to my cell phone, I carry a dual band HT and a CB HT in the kit bag under the seat...I get to some wild and wooly places on occasion and having multiple comm resources is worthwhile.

I'm not a big fan of yakking and riding at the same time, either...that said, the active CB would be used only for PGR escort missions, because warnings and directions are given out over the air on occasion by the road captain...mostly would be listening, not doing much talking. Other than that one application, the radio would reside in the kit bag under the seat.

Here is a quick pkg I put together for you just as an example (N1FJP many moons ago). It gives you an estimate of what it will cost you to buy and mount a radio. Obviously you have many choices in quality. I have my GPS mounted in a similar way. If you choose to mount it in the center of the handle bars Dennis has a couple of mounts as well. Approx pkg total around $150. Does not come with a charger or speaker/mic headset. Standing with you in MA!

Radio $50
Cradle $21
Mount $25
Base $13

The Sema Bluetooth SMH10 ( http://www.senabluetooth.com/products/smh10.php?tab_menu=overview ) recently came out with an adapter SR10 ( http://www.senabluetooth.com/products/sr10.php?tab_menu=overview ) for two way radio.

I prefer to pay attention to riding----distractions can kill you. Worked for over 1.5 million miles for me.

About 250,000 rubber band, remembering TMAX has both chain and rubber band as I recall in driveline.

Will continue with Rubber Band miles in the spring when it is new bike time......No Suzuki 650 for me and I doubt there will be any new SilverWing or Suzuki Burgman 400 changes....and one of them will be next scooter....so continue with rubber band drive......but note except for my Daelim 125 in Korea (perfect for purpose) Honda SilverWing probably has best/simple set up with 16,000 mile change interval....and not much if any history of broken belts when run and changed at the right time.

I make no mods to clutch, etc. From what I hear hard ridden Vespas (new ones) eat belt at 6,000 miles. Not acceptable in my book.

I have used a Motorola 75-822 handheld CB on my wife's Silverwing. I was also using a J&M Integrator which allowed me to use the helmet headset that I use for my Goldwing, but I believe you can get a speaker asscessory that you can mount in a helmet and just use the CB. The Motorola 75-822 only costed about $80.
