6114RE: [BCD396XT] Uniden 396XT and discone
- Dec 27, 2011Maybe the coax is shorted somewhere, or you have an improperly installed
connector. How long of a coax run is it? In some cases the cable losses
can exceed any benefit from an external antenna.

I write here because I am quite disappointed with my 396XT handheld.
I use it with a Nagoya NA-771 antenna and the general perfomance it is quite
good. Last week I set up a double discone antenna on the roof
together a top low loss Ecoflex cable, just to say that the perfomance
let much to be desired. I can hear much stuff with the Nagoya.
Yes, the attenuator is off and I have checked all the connectors, wire,
installation and everything is fine.
Now I regret selling my beloved AOR AR5000 in order to buy this Uniden.
Anybody has this problem? Would it be better to sell it and buying a
Realistic pro 2006 ?
Thank you and best wishes !
