Somewhere down the line, I seem to remember that someone had installed a way to patch their VHF into their stereo speakers. That's easy enough, but I also remember something was put in line that interupted the audio source of the radio and put the VHF source on line when a received transmission came through.

Am I dreaming, or is anyone aware of this setup? If so , what, where and how?

Shakespeare makes an AM/FM/VHF Marine band separator which eliminates the need for separate AM/FM antenna. You can operate VHF radios at the same time without interfering with VHF radio performance. Part # 4357
It doesn't enable one to hear your VHF broadcast over your stereo speakers, however.
My Shakespeare catalog is old, so try for new product info.

For years the J&M corporation has made a device for motorcycles that is similar to what you are describing. When we rode a GoldWing, my wife and I had speakers in our helmets, and when we talked on our intercom, our voices would override the music. And when someone transmitted on the CB radio, it would also override the music. Same with the radar detector. So I am sure that they could do the same thing for a VHF transmission. Their web site is

I'm going to inquire with some local wireheads and see what they can come up with. If anything can be done, I'll let y'all know.
