i have been using a radio shack multi band magnetic scanner for several years with great results..but in the last 3 months its like i am only getting reception thru the coax and not the whip..and i have tried several scanners and several different places on my car..and i have also
checked the continuity of the antennas and have found no breaks or shorts..any suggestions short of a 12 guage is needed.thx.

Since you are "only getting reception thru the coax and not the whip" I would check and clean the area where the wip connects to the mount. If it is a sealed unit it may be time for a new antenna. I have had mobile antenna setups go bad due to corrosion and sometimes replacement is the best course..
