Most cb's will only work through headsets in my experience. The helmet mike acts as your microphone. Check under it and see if the mic wire runs to the headset port. If so usually won't work through speakers :D

I can't say for the 1200, but my 1100 and 1500 both can play the CB through the speakers, headset or not.

I just wanted to let you know my 86 gl1200 Aspy CB does work thru both the head sets and speakers.....
Of course in the speaker mode you can listen only....
I hope this helps with your question...

If you have the stock Panasonic radio, the 3rd knob changes the speaker and headset modes...
I hope this explains what I meant...
