Sudden attenuation of receive

I put a trouble ticket in last night but I thought I should reach out and see if I am missing anything in troubleshooting this issue.  

The radio was off for a few days and when I turned it back on I noticed that the noise floor was significantly reduced.  I normally run around a -110 and now it is indicating -135.     Last night I went to talk to a group that meets on one of the local 6M repeaters and it took a +20dB pre-amp to hear the repeater.    I switched to another radio that is connected to the same antenna system through input 2 on the amp and everything is working normally.  

I did a factory reset without change.   Any suggestion are appreciated. I am leaving the country for three weeks so if it needs to go in I would like to send it before I leave.

Thanks to all, I opened a ticket last night and Dudley replied. It looks like it will be returning to the Mother Ship for repair. I guess that is why we never sell all our old radios.
