CB quits working after an hour

Trying to analyze this one with no luck. Trip to the Dragon this past weekend and after an hour or so I lost the ability to transmit on the CB. I can hit the PTT button and see on the display where the mic should be open to talk but it isn't transmitting. At one of the stops I tried another cord from the console to my helmet. Worked for even less time and then I started losing the audio from the radio also. Next stop, switched back to the original cord and all was fine for an hour. Stopped to eat, came out and all was good for about another hour. This is the 3rd different set of headsets this bike has done this with and it's getting annoying. It's done it with the HD factory set, the HD 1/2 helmet set and now with my Nolan setup so I really don't think it's in the cords or helmets. Just trying to find a place to start so when I take it to the dealer for repair under ESP I don't get hammered with diagnosis time. I'm starting to think it's either the radio itself or the connector in the console although we've had issues with the passenger connector as well.

Thoughts on what the problem might be are welcome. Opinions of what I should spend my money on instead unless they fully integrate with with stock radio are not.

I haven't had this issue (yet) but if it's doing it in both connectors and causing issues with the radio and the CB, my guess would be something with the main radio. I believe the intercom setup is integrated into the radio itself. I know the CB is an add-on module, but with the problem happening in both areas I would think it's the main radio module. If the dealership charges for diag charges under the ESP (mine is still under factory warranty), you might want to check with Iron Cross and see if they have any suggestions.
