Default Antenna?

I had a similar problem (I think) a while back. What fixed my problem was the connection from the lower comm antenna to the antenna itself was frade and once I replaced that connection with a new connector the problem went away.

Default I found the problem

Evidently when I last installed the radio I didn't didn't get the lug on the screw that draws the radio into its mount in the right slot & even though it was tight it didn't draw the radio in far enough.So it evidently made good contact with the pins ok for about 125 hrs & then started losing connection intermittently & finally not at all. Was an easy fix once I figured it out. Probably would have saved a lot of work if I would have just pushed in on the radio in by hand.
