You are using the piece of 75 ohm coax/matching line with the HF6V. I no
longer have the HV6V but I seem to recall that it's about 11 ft long. It's
required for proper operation. Also, a good ground system, more than a
single driven ground or 2, is required for the HF6V to operate. Radials
will be necessary.
It is not a Tentec radio problem. I've used both with great success.
