Lose reception hooking up rf cable Diocletian on 31/5/17
Does the center pin on the 3 ft coaxial act as a short wave.Then when the outer shield is hooked up it acts as a RF cable?Dont know but it's an interesting way to start out.

I have it hooked up to a AOR LA 400 loop antenna.Im just using it for reception for a.m till I can afford a tx antenna.With just the coax cable hooked up to the radio I can hear am radio.As soon as I screw in with the outer shield touching it goes out.It only works with center pin.I don't get it radio is brand new.

Hi there I'm just getting started with my new radio.When I hook up the RF cable as soon as I start to screw in the outershied to the radio I lose reception. When just the pin is touching I can receive.I bought a new cable thinking it was shorted.But does the same thing.I have a Kenwood Ts 480.Thank you for any suggestions.
