My apologies..... I was responding to a couple different posts.... and the response about Ch 9 problem was for FX 4 Rangerman.
Staying up all night talking DX on the radio doesn't do much for thinking clearly the following day. Coffee does wonders for clearing brain FOG....
Does the radio actually power up when you key up the CB? OR are you hearing your CB audio (RF) thru the stereo system speakers when you key up the radio ?
IF the problem is that your radio does turn on when you keyup the CB... Not sure how that could happen since if the power wires were some how shorted or back feeding the stereo would be on all the time.... Do you have relay in the system somewhere? The stray RF could be enough to energize a relay in the system and power up the radio.
IF the problem actually is the CB audio coming thru the radio speakers then the CB RF is leaking into the stereo system by using something in the stereo system as an antenna.
You can try using shielded speaker wiring, wrapping the radio in shielding and grounding out the radio case. When RF leaks your stereo system... it can be difficult to track down and remove.
