Re: VHF antenna issues?
When my radios act up like that my first place I check is the ground wire. Odd things happen if the ground isn't REAL good at the other end.
You've lost me. What ground wire? VHFs are normally connected thus : + and - to the power supply. The VHF antenna cable goes to the antenna. The only requirement for the antenna cable is that the inner core, and the shield, are unbroken, all the way to the antenna. Normally the antenna is isolated from it's mounting bracket. So where does a "ground wire" fit in?
