    I have a mag mount and the whip that I have been using for 2m very successfully. Something broke the base of the whip where it screws on to the mag mount. I purchased a Comet SBB5 and screwed on to the mag mount and I don't seem to be transmitting or receiving. I don't seem to be hitting the repeater. The SBB5 is a ground independent antenna. Did I purchase the wrong antenna. It radio is good. i brought it into my house and c0nnected it to my 2m base antenna and it transmits and receives fine. Did I buy the incorrect antenna or did I just get a lemon?
