Will a CB antenna work for AM FM radio?

Which antenna is the CB on a Harley?
The CB is on the right side. The side with the air cleaner, the side with the brakes, the side of your bike where your put your right foot on the floorboard, the side without the jiff stand. I have the Harley shorties, and when they are mounted, I don’t see a difference in them from the outside.
Can you use car antenna CB?
If these are two concerns you have right now, the good news is that you can use your car radio antenna to transmit and receive cb radio signals. However, you’ll need to invest in an am/fm cb splitter as well as go through the process of measuring signal strength using an SWR meter.
Is CB FM or AM?
CB mostly uses AM and amateur radio uses many different modes with FM being the most widely used mode above 30 MHz.
What band is CB?

Will a CB work without antenna?
CB Radio – Most new CB radios come with a microphone, mounting bracket and power cord, so you won’t need to buy those separately. CB Antenna – Without an antenna, your radio is useless! Failing to tune your antenna can result in poor system performance and even permanent radio damage.
Is a longer CB antenna better?
Choosing the Optimal CB Antenna Length Yes, taller/longer is better for range of distance when it comes to an antenna and the optimal antenna length is 1/4 wavelength. That translates to 102 inches (8.5 feet), too tall to be practical for most mobile applications.
Do I need a spring on my CB antenna?
A spring is beneficial for most CB antennas, provided you are using a good, conductive spring of the correct size for your antenna. You should definitely add a spring if there is a chance your antenna will strike limbs or other obstacles, or when you need to add length to an antenna for SWR improvement.

Can a CB radio be traced?
