      I've noticed the same thing using a Diamond SRH77CA. It does not seat down all the way.

      I had a 396 previously and didn't have this problem. I also was using the same king of antenna but this is a newer one I ordered for this radio so I'm not sure if it's an antenna or radio change.

      I sold the old radio/antenna to my neighbor so I can find out.

      I have the Laird UHF "stubby", and see the same thing.

      Subj:[BCD396XT] BCD396T/BCD396XT SMA connector

      I recently got a Tuf Duck (Laird) EXS150SM duck for use on my BCD396XT and found that it apparently uses a different variant of the SMA than the 396 does. Tried it on my 396T and same story. When screwed on there is a 1/8" gap between the radio and duck. They also make an EXS150SMI for Icom and an EXS150SMV for Vertex (Standard/Yaesu). Apparently the 396 takes an SMA with a deeper socket. Anyone have any experience with different SMA connectors and perhaps know what the Uniden SMA is similar to - Icom or Vertex? Thanks
