Fix for the Baehr K1200LT and CB radio.
I finally have the fix for the Baehr K1200LT communication system and CB combination. It has been a long hard battle. But after taking my bike apart and moving cables , radio, and antenna’s many times and purchasing 3 different CB radios, 3 different antennas, SWR meters and countless filters, tie wraps, tape, etc, the list goes on and on. I have countless emails to the person I purchased the system from and Baehr USA and finally Baehr Germany sent me the fix.
It is a single filter cable that goes between the power wires (red and black) and the CB radio. From what I understand the filter converts the current from DC to AC back to DC therefore eliminating the ground loop inside the system. The Baehr cable number is ESF-05-02.
As soon as I installed the cable all of my problems went away. My CB would never work right, it had feedback inside the headset and would transmit one time and the next it would not.
When I would plug the two prong cable into the CB, I could remove the power ground and the radio would still power up. Now with the filter in place I cannot do this. So it proves to me that it did remove the ground loop.
I do thank Baehr USA for there help, they got the cable to me at no charge, it just took some time. Most of all I hope that this helps someone else having the same problems.
