    Anyone out there using this combo?
    Just purchased a brand new IC 7300 Hf transceiver from DX Engineering and a used Chameleon p-loop magnetic antenna. (Purchased on QRZ.com). Using a fairly new Alpha Delta 2- position switch between the 7300 and loop antenna. Got the used antenna via UPS today. Hooked everything up today to just do some listening on the hf bands (I've been off the air for several years due to a long spell in the hospital).
    Turned the radio "on" for the 1st time, scanned thru 15 thru 40 meters, absolutely zero signals! I tried the tuning knob at the bottom of the capacitor box to no avail. I quickly read thru the startup operations for the radio. I do hear variation on the bands, but no specific transmissions are received. I spent just about all day setting everything up (tough when you're wheelchair-bound).
    I'm at a total loss why I can't receive any signals on my IC 7300/P-LOOP antenna combo. Ideas?
