I have a Flex 1500 that I bought pre-release at Dayton. I have had a recurring problem with a loose antenna BNC connector. The first time, it was fixed gratis, then next time close to $100 bucks, and it is loose again. I talked last year at Dayton to the guy who designed the transceiver and he admitted that the solder area isn't big enough on the early units to adequately solder the connector. I would have hoped for a strong mechanical attachment. I now use an RG-58 jumper to the rig but still it is again loose and intermittent. Haas anyone else had this problem with their Flex 1500, or an I just especially cursed?
