OK. What's wrong? I have a brand new GP-3, flying at 30'. I also have a slim jim at 25' or so. The GP-3 is by far 10x worse than the slim jim. I can hear the local repeater and the airport perfectly, but when I talk to my buddy, 9miles away simplex it's downright atrocious. At 50 watts he said I'm in the mud, and he barely breaks my squelch. I connect back up the slim jim, full quieting both ways at 15-20 watts. OK full disclosure time, I'm using RG6 with F connectors and PL259 adapters. BUT I'm using them on the slim jim too. I'm not looking for absolute 100% best of the best no loss performance. Any thoughts on this issue? If the slim jim and comet were the same I'd buy into the coax issue. But seeing as the slim jim works so well, I don't know. I don't want to order up 120$ worth of coax and have it be the same. I COULD swap the slim jim coax with the comet, but I'll have to pull the comet back down, for the 3rd time. But might as well as it's not operational in it's current state. SWR on 2m 147.4700 1.2 @50watts forward. Photo for reference.
