    Has anyone else experienced this? I have an 09 Ultra and recently I discovered that while I can transmit to other CBs when they transmit I cannot recieve anything. I have tried this with 2 other systems with the same result.

    Nope, normally set for one bar, tried many different settings.

    As I understand it then, you can transmit but not receive correct?

    Did you do any recent work regarding electrical mods or additions, and do check the antenna connection, and when others key their tranmissions do you see any RF reception indication on the SS meter? Usually people have trouble the other way around...no transmitting but receiving okay...

    No, haven't done anywork lately and no I don't see any visual indications when others transmit. To restate, I can transmit but not receive.

    When you transmit does com break and there is just no voice or is there no indication at all of the Xmit?

    All seems normal when I transmit and others can hear me.

    I know you probably have checked this, but is the speaker switch in the right position?

    I know this may not be the answer, but I wonder if the antenna is not tuned. I just attempted to install a J&M CB on my Heritage and I could receive, but not transmit. The tech folks said I needed the antenna tuned by a Standing Wave Radio meter.....
