Just set up 6500 out of box. It transmits full power to dummy load or antennas (100 W & low SWR) but will not receive on any band. Acts like antenna is not connected. Made sure it was configured for ant 1, connected to ant 1 and then tried ant 2 connected to ant 2. My other radios work fine so ant system is OK. Cables OK. Flex display is good. Tried "Settings/Radio Setup" and this forum. Any thoughts?   Config issue?   73, Jim
