I was coming here to start thread on loss of range. I went from an average track of about 180 nm to just about 55 nm.
I read a comment about water and another gentleman who said his range was indeed affected by water intrusion at the antenna. I pulled my antenna apart and sure as crap water in the connection.
I used a few q-tips some rubbing alcohol and compressed air to clean them out and the range went back to normal.
Thanks for the postings.
