    Wow,
    No contacts!
    My radio went to the gutter after that opening into europe.

    somehow the centerpin on the SO-239 got connected to the chassie?
    somewhere in the circuit board.
    So now I gotta get my darn radio fixed.

    But at least I talked to France, Italy, and England first

    Sorry to hear that.
    If you just measured this with an ohmmeter, there is probably nothing wrong with that. Most HF transceivers have a RF choke from the antenna connector to ground. It has a low DC resistance but a very high reactance for RF.

    What are the symptoms; just no RF output? Does it draw current when transmitting, what do the internal meters say?

    Just to let you know Kyle, Gi is a really soughtafter place...especially on CW, due to the number of hams in NI.

    Everything works up to par,
    Just IT SHOULD NOT!!!!!!
    be conducting that well with the chassie.
    I dont want to be using the radio as a dummy load!
    there is NO resistance between the chassie and the center pin of the SO-239[​IMG]
    I think I have to "Take it to the repair shop"
    If you know what I mean.

    I am leaning towards a peice of stray solder sticking somewhere in the circiut just before the output.
    if its not that then I will have to take it to someone else as I have not enought knowledge other than my eyeballs.
    I can see when something is wrong, and see the problem.

    But I have no idea how to test for one. well I do.
    But if its a little more complicated than a bit of solder.
    I will take it in and have it looked at.
