Do I need a mic to listen to the CB?

Postby flw » Sun Aug 29, 2010 4:15 pm



Do I need a Mic just to listen to the CB via the front speakers. Extra cash is low due to preventative maintenance needed on my new to me but used bike.

Thanks Dan

No, you don't have to have a mike. Push the squelch button to switch from head set to speakers.

Of course, you're going to want one, to talk back to the people you're going to hear. :)

I do it all the time but do not push the transmit botton. You may hurt the CB radio. I had a guy tell me you don't ned a headset the talk but I', not buying that. He said that you can talk thru the seakers.

You can not talk through the speakers. You also won't hurt anything by pushing transmit without a mic attached. The only way you can hurt the transmitter is by pushing transmit without an antenna attached.
