Umm.. have you tried using an SWR meter to see if the antenna is connected properly and that the radio is actually transmitting, and what power level it is transmitting at? BTW, if it is an older radio and the antenna is not connected properly, and you tried to transmit, you may have fried the transmitter. IIRC, that was a possibility with older VHF units.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
