I am trying to get my Washington radio to work and am having some issues. This radio has the 5 pin connector for the mic. I am using a D-104 lollipop also with a 5 pin connector. something is not right. I key up the mic and the TX is very weak. receives great! I am running a procomm antenna at bout 40 feet to the base of the antenna. SWR's are excellent! I also have a Palomar 90a connected. with the amp turned on all my needles bounce all over the place. I have taken the radio set up down and installed a different radio. I attached a COBRA 29PLX in its place. again SWR's are still great. just can not get a reply to see if it is getting out. I have ran the Washington in Colorado for years and could talk DX all day long. I move to Oklahoma and can get any farther than a mile at best. what am I doing wrong? I am wanting to do a full upgrade and start doing ham radio stuff but if I can not get a CB to work I am not sure I want to start thinking about ham!!!!!! I am sure there is a simple fix I just need to find it. If I have not explained something well enough please let me know.
