I have a Icom
which doesn't seem to be recieving any signals other than a weak morse code. I've never had an SSB
before, so I'm no expert, but I have had an SSB expert on the boat and he said that the radio
was defective. I sent it to the local certified tech, who then sent it to Icom
, who then sent it back. All have said that it passes all tests on all bands. The person who thought it was the SSB though said that it was the radio
as you could for instance hear the same weak morse code signal on several different bands, but really nothing else. Sooo. I'd like to double check the antenna
. Can I do something simple like hook up a wire to the antenna
jack on the back of the unit to test it to ensure that the radio actually can recieve signals? Would that work or just create more issues. I do know not to try to transmit!
