hi

I have a question regarding installation of the supplied antenna. I am able to connect the antenna, and the connection is solid as far as the connector is concerned. However i would believe that the rubber duck itself would not have the ability to be moved easily kina like you might have with a loose screw. The antenna will not stay vertical, or at a semi angle without falling flat on the surface of the table. Could it be there maybe something that is still not tightened enough?, i suspect not, but want a second opinion.

Otherwise with that, really have been enjoying the radio.:)

Thanks
Zach :)

I've found in my own two units that another 'quarter turn' of the outside of the knurled ring on the SMA connector fixes that so that the antenna stays at a desired angle.

I'm on my second HP. First one crapped out. Both had the same Ant problem. Also a fairly low volume as I've seen mentioned elsewhere. Other than that, a pretty radio.
