Agree with Ken. On receive, nearly anything (coat hangar) works for an antenna. Transmit is a lot fussier. Specifically, look for good connections where the coax shield is attached to the connector, and where the connector attaches to ground. Both at the transmitter but especially at the antenna end. May be something as simple as corrosion between the connector and ground.
