Folks, please help me with a little problem I have with my 525 analog.  
I picked this up some time back and it seemed to work OK.  I made a good 
contact on 75 meters.  I moved my shack to another room and this radio sat 
unused for about 6 months.  I decided to hook it back up ...and got poor audio. 
 I checked my antenna with a visual inspection from the ground, and all 
appeared well.  To shorten the story, the problem was with the antenna.  The 
center pin had pulled out but I couldn't see this from the ground  .....but no 
problem when I saw the lead-in lying on the ground a few days later.
But, before this discovery, I took the top and bottom covers off of the 525 and 
loosened and retightened all screws ...and unplugged/replugged all plugs I 
could see.  Now, I thought the little 525 was OK  ...but the 75 meter band is 
requiring reception in the reverse mode (SB-R) instead of normal (SB-N).  The 
40 meter band is not quite up-to-snuff either.  20 meters is great!  Did I 
replug something wrong?  I think I unplugged/plugged each, one at a time. What 
the heck is going on here and what is the remedy?  Help, please.
