One of my weekend projects was to replace the VHF
coax inside the boat. When I did so, I fired up the radio
, and it powered, but no sound came out. All operations looked normal, but no sound. Transmitted fine too. THe radio
is less than a year old.
So later, I am doing project
# 2, which is relocating the CD stereo player. In hooking up the power leads, I disconnected the negative return lead to the VHF
, and Huh, it was still powered.
How can this happen? Could the no sound out of radio be related?
I brought the radio home and will try connecting it to a battery
outside of the boat to see what happens. Strange things are afoot!
