Radio CB Installation

Postby ceasefire49 » Mon Dec 06, 2010 9:31 am



I have a 84 Goldwing Interstate. Recently I came by a CB Radio and RM 1200 Panasonic. I am wanting to install on the Bike but kind of at a loss after viewing the electrical diagrams. The radio has the Volume controls and such and appears to be complete. I also have the Junction Box and Clock with the lock. I have the Radio Bracket also. My question is do I need the stand alone amp? Didn't know if the CB was supplied with an amp and if so if that was integrated in. I also have the handlebar controls. I see listed a small relay on ebay also. Any help would be appreciated.

Items I have:
RM1200 Radio
Hondaline CB/complete w/ Volume control/harness etc.
RM1100/1200 Radio Bracket/Harness
Helmet Junction Box
Clock
Handlebar Controls for Radio and CB

Items I am thinking I am needing Besides the antenna; :?:
Power amp
Relay


Any help would be appreciated. :D

Amps are not legal on CB's! The legal output is resticted to 5watts. Cb's are capable of approx. 4Watts output and some can be "tuned" for a little more. CB's are "self contained" and need nothing more than to be, mounted, "wired up", antenna attached, SWR tuned and your ready to go!

Thanks..I was doing a complete Install/conversion on a 84 interstate..Wasn't sure because I didn't know what exactly the amp in the system did. I have found out now. But thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate it. :D

Right, the power amp you're talking about is in fact the audio amplifier for the speakers in your audio system, not a CB linear amp.
