adding a CB to my Victory Cross Road
I have been having a heck of a time adding a CB to my Cross Road 2012 Classic LE.
I have decided and purchased Midland 822.
I brought an license plate 4 foot antenna from Revzilla. (piece of junk for $89) paid a "CB expert" to SWR my unit and antenna. I was noisy and had to much electrical whine when keyed. Could only Broadcast 200 feet.
On the road this weekend, I stopped at a couple of truck stops.
Now just installed a truckers mirror clamp (on the saddle bag guard strong, looks good and better ground plane) and 18 gauge coax 18 feet long.
Got a firestick phase 4 adjustable antenna
Had to order/purchase a MH Instruments Electrical noise Filter (PN107) from the local Harley Shop.
Tomorrow will pick up SWR meter cause I can't find my old one (nuts!)
Got the noise out of the system and the filter killed the electrical whine.
SWR meter should finish job. I will post here.
NOW My question: The radio and bluetooth (Sena remote) look like crap hanging off my handle bars. Any suggestions to clean up and secure my items?
