I have a problem with this radio. While recieving the radio started to cut in and out. I went to the back and giggled the coax cable. This appeared to be where the problem was. After a couple more giggles with it cutting in and out it stopped receiving totally. Took it to a friend who opened it up and we found a broken solder joint where the coax connector is joined to the board. He soldered it back put the radio back together and the recieves was back , only now we have no transmit. Apparently these radios with his poor coax connector are common. Has anyone out there had this problem and how did they repair the transmitting problem. Need help!!!!!! Thanks

Have you tried resetting the radio? Is there not a factory reset that can be done to that radio. Find out what it takes to reset it totally and do that first. The TX might have went into protection mode and thus the no transmit.
