Default Orbiter issues

New to this whole thing...have 2 Orbiter SR4000, both have the same issue, one more then the other. Intermittent "cannot detect antenna" signal, worse on one radiothen the other. Usually fixed for a short period of time with wiggling or unpluging the antenna and then plugging back in. Is there a fix that a techie could repair?

Many times the antenna wires can get kinked and sometimes without one even seeing it on the outside of the wire. Check the antenna wire to make sure it's not kinked.

Try hooking another antenna up to that dock and see if the message goes away. If it does it's the antenna, if not it's the dock or the orbiter.

It might be the pin on the dock where the antenna plugs into is broken.
