You have no power because your radio is not tuned to your antenna.You get a new radio and put junky coax and a decent antenna and you expect it to work right. Get 75 ft of rg-213 and you will see a change.

SOURCE: Good Morning,
Sounds like the radio has never been setup or calibrated and this needs down by a radio shop before it will work. The channel freq. need to be set . I may be wrong but all Mine needed this done first .

SOURCE: random power out indications
Your antenna is not tuned for Lowest SWR. The higher the SWR the less power you put out.
It needs to be tuned to the center of the band. Channel 19 or 20. an SWR of 2 is not that good. You should not go over 1.5. Idealely it should be as low as possible. My antenna is tuned so that my SWR is 1.0 on every channel.
So on channel 1 your SWR is high, so it puts out less power. Some what better on channel 20. And your SWR is lowest on channel 40, thus it gets out better.
You want to get the SWR on channels 1 and 40 the same. You need to know whether or not the antenna is too long or short.
Tune to channel 1 take a reading. Take note of it. Then do the same one channel 40.
If the reading is higher on 40 then on 1 your antenna is too long and you need to make it shorter. if its higher on 1 then on 40, its too short so make it longer. When you get to the point when the SWR on 1 and 40 is about the same, you about as good as you are going to get with the meter in the radio, and you will see that on channel 20 your SWR will be very low, and it will be your best channel, and you will also see that you put out about the same wattage on all channels.

If your talking at least 2 then it sounds like it is the antenna. Any antenna should talk 10-12 miles on a good day, no matter what radio you're using. So I'd get a second look at that system.
