Default Garmin VHF 200

Does anyone have a solution to the issue with Garmin vhf 200 radio transmitting but not receiving? We sent our radio out for repair (Garmin replaced the unit) however the problem still exists. Could this problem be with the antenna or the NMEA 2000 connections?

not with 2000 connections

a bad antenna is normally problems are no TX and RX only. strange to have TX and no RX.

do you get speaker noise with volume up and squelch down?

an SWR meter will test the cable / ant

All channels? Do you get the WX channels?

Are you set to USA frequencies?

Make sure volume is turned up?

Does it make DSC calls? Position requests work?

How do you know it transmits?

Provide more details. Is it N2K interfaced to your plotter?

I have the same unit.
