The most common cause of low/ intermittent  signal, is a bad solder 
joint where the antenna socket connects to PCB with the antenna select 
relays at the back of the rig. The connecting wire is stiff, and 
pressure on the antenna socket breaks the solder joint giving a bad 
connection. The cure is to replace the link with a piece of multi-strand 
wire which is more flexible.
      I have come across this problem on many MPs.
                Good luck, vy 73
