Thanks for the reply Dave, I forgot to mention the radio has a WX channels pre programmed, and got one channel before I re-soldered the connector. I didn't try to get the same channels after I re-soldered the connector.

When I scanned, I figured there would be plenty of radio action to stumble upon someones transmission.

I'm assuming I have the connector correct because I get decent ohms from the center pin, and the antenna center connector, and remains open if I try to check ohms from center pin to the ground (outside) of the same connector. If I check the ground side of the antenna connector to the tub, I get continuity.

I'll lock in to some of the frequencies you listed, and will listen.
