I also have a PRO-97 with the same "problem." But it's not really a problem, it's just the design of the BNC connector. It's designed with a little give so you can take the antenna off more easily. The fact that you put on another antenna and had the same result is proof of this basic design flaw.I have a rubber ducky antenna on my Pro-97 & the antenna is very wobbly, but the bnc connector is not loose. I tried another rubber ducky & had the same issue. any suggestions?
Great solution. Where did you find the O ring, a hardware shop, an electronics store?I had the same problem with my PRO-92 and PRO-93. My solution was to put a thin rubber O-ring on the BNC before attaching the antenna. Thick enough to eliminate wobble, but not so thick that I had to work "more than should be normal" to attach the antenna.
IIRC, I bought a little (20 pcs?) assortment in a blister pack at RadioShack.Great solution. Where did you find the O ring, a hardware shop, an electronics store?
