Check the antenna connection...I had to re wire my coax to the connector to the bandi mount because the ground sucked....

Well as far as the ground goes, I scrapped off the paint on the connection area of the bandi mount. What else can I do. They problem really is I am not sure where the problem is exactly.

If you got that connector that is connected to the coax and tightened it to much, it broke the soldered connection. I had the same issue with the walcott set up that was advertised in the blue room....I ended up going to radio shack, buying a new connector, re inserted the coax and fixed my issue.... I was a tuning fool after that. Have had no issues since and it's been over a year.

Yea I heard of that, so I made sure not to tighten it too much, Actually I think its a little loose, not sure exactly what the torque should be but I made just enough to feel solid. But I have a feeling it may be my radio, because I am getting different swrs with different radios.

I was running around all day and tryin to get home there was an accident in both directions on the 5, 15 and 805. I was stuck in Chula Juana for hours. I did find TONS of road puddles though. best wat to get around traffic is drive through the blocked off flooded areas. lolz
