New To Radio / Problem with antenna on 1 of 2 radios
March 18, 2017, 11:45:14 pm
I have 2 Baofeng UV-5Rs.  I can swap the stock 7" antennas between them, and both xmit and recv fine.  I can attach a 14.5" antenna to 1 of them, and it works fine, but if I put it on the other, I recv no signals.  It's as if it's not making any connection.
How do I determine what the problem might be?  A visual inspection shows all connectors on the 3 antenna looking identical. 
Any ideas?
