But no more receiving any signal at any band (steppir DB42 connected) Started smart sdr on PC at radio side with teamvieuwer, same there so i guess hardware have serveral antenna's , all the same not a beep.

    Hi Jan, I know that you are remote, but if you can get to your radio site, try moving the antenna to ANT2. If that works but ANT1 does not work, then it sounds like a hardware problem with ANT1.

    Another thing to look at is the connections and cabling between the radio and antenna. You could try temporarily moving the antenna to RXA to be sure that the antenna and cabling are OK.

    @Jan on8aj Can you include a screen shot of SmartSDR please. It really helps to diagnose your situation.

    Thanks!

    Can you try 1 more thing. Please export your profiles and do a database reset on the radio and then see if it works as you expect.

    Let me know.

    Been to the remote lacation. 
    Pressed OK button and power on until the white light came on. Let the radio start up, no difference. 
    Changed antenna from ouput 1 to output 2, no difference either. Hooked up my icom ans searched for a strong signal, 
    found 9a station on 14.254 with 59+ signal. Antenna back to the flex, VFO to 14.254 but noting, no reception at all. 
    Also no power, not on antenna A and not on B (photo taken on RX ant)
