My husband and I both have 2012 Ultra Limited's. He just installed the quick disconnect to remove my tour pack and used the Harley relocation kit to mount shorty antennas on my bike. I can talk to and hear bikes behind me, but I cannot hear transmissions from my husband who rides in front of me and he cannot hear my transmissions either. The bikes behind me can hear and talk to my husband.

Any ideas what the problem might be? Thank you

Did the same thing to my 2015 with the shorty antennas. Had same issues. Put the original antennas on and all is better. I guess the shorty antennas are the problem.

Well CB broadcast/reception is being blocked by the bike, you need to get the antennas up higher then the bike, go with the stock antennas and it may help, or try to relocate the mount hight on the bike

Seems like a lot of people who tried the shorty antennas switched back to the longer versions and did OK. Trying to get my hands on a shorty just to do some testing on it to see WTF the problem is.
