I have a vx-180 portable radio. My problem is when it is on my belt it dosnt receve very well at all. i bought a new "high gain" antenna and ith elps some but not near as much as i would like it to.. Our local EMS Repeater puts out over 75 watts and just tonite on the test it was cutting in and out i am only 10 miles from it.

any help would be great as to how to get my radio to receve better

thanks
