wayneakp Posted July 27, 2010 Share Posted July 27, 2010 Hi all I recently put a new VHF on Sea Jem - one with that new fangled DSC. Anyway last night Rictic visited my moorings (so we had to have a beer ) and on his way out asked if I could call him so he could check out his handheld. About 300 yds up river he could not hear me. I tried on the handheld and that was fine. Next Maggot took the handheld for a walk and she could hear me o.k but it was'nt great and I could hear her o.k. Then I thought I would call Lowestoft - firstly Low and then Hi power and the obviously could not hear me. I could hear them usually but sometimes the Handheld would pick up an conversation and the new set only one of the parties. Finally I tried calling Luke in Reedham - he could not hear me either. So I guess it's now a new antenna which will be a right pain running the coax - I am moored next to quite a large steel ship - I did wonder about that but then the handheld was fine. Any ideas? thanks Wayne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
