I think Matt may have had a dodgy aerial cause mine does not seem to bad when trying to contact coast guard stations for radio checks. even if I use the low power setting (1Watt) I can be heard by the coast guard several miles away.
I think its worth checking how good the connection is at the bottom of the aerial, I am not overly keen on the way its done and I think Matts might not have been too well connected.
