Not sure how handy you are, but classic trouble shooting involves eliminating everything that's unnecessary and tracking down faults, i.e., adding/removing/swapping. If you have a simple dipole, you can eliminate the backstay, tuner, and ground from the equation.

It might be a problem with the radio itself, but swapping radios isn't as easy as swapping antennas. Try eliminating the easy stuff first. Good luck...

Re: advice needed

Had problems with my SSB and contacted the local Ham Radio group. Two radio geeks came over and spent four hours going over the whole system, found a loose connection and we had a great time. The extent of their knowledge and expertise was amazing, just listening to them gave me a headache. And they will not take money, they do it for fun.

Luckily, most people aren't that ungrateful.
