That was my thread. Big discussion, still no results. I've tried damn near everything. Though one user said there is no circuitry to detect a different antenna. https://forums.radioreference.com/co...l-antenna.html

I get about 14 miles with the 1/2 wave (definitely not complaining! LOL), whereas I get about 3 with the external. Crazy!
