electronics geek who wants to make a few bucks? friend who has a favorite beverage and knows how to use soldering iron and ohm meter?
it appears (from your comment) that the mike has a broken wire in the system (probably at the plug or pc board end).
Possibly a crack in the solder of the CB. Reflow work.

Yeah, sounds like the plug may need rewiring (does it cut in & out when you wiggle the cord right there?)

Road Kings are nice but the Astatic Mic are the way to go. IMHO...
The Red Devil is a pwr mic with Noise Canceling capability.
