    Possible your mike key is stuck in the transmit position.

    The output R.F. amplifier may not be working...do you have any portable CB radios available to listen for the *break* or SWR meter to monitor when you key the mike?

    I forget, is there a seperate volume control for the CB like there is for the intercom? If there is, check the volume level. I know that i was ready to take mine back last year because I thought the intercom was broken and it was the volume level just down too low to hear it. Might be a similar thing with your CB. You almost need a seperate manual for the radio....i think its confusing. Stuck mike explains why everyone elses went out then came back on when you shut off.

    Anyway, ride safe and enjoy

    Switch headsets with one of your riding buddies and see if that makes a difference. I'm on my third HD headset. The first 2 gave exactly the same condition as you describe when they went out.

    Have a look at IMC Motorcom USA. Very good product. When you go to the web site check dealer location may be one near you...

    Do a careful inspection of the connectors, sometimes the mating contacts "recede (backup)" into the connector or the female recepticle is distorted or weak tension or metal fatigue.
