First, use an ohm meter and test the power wires for continuity. If they test good then there is a protection diode on the board that is probably blown. If I remember right it is a 1N4001 diode. Generally you can see if its blown as it will either be burnt or look like its cracked. If it is you will need to replace that diode to restore power.

-should be tuned, have good coax with no pinches, whip is centered over highest flat metal surface, no metal beside adjacent to whip, power is wired to battery direct, not to ignition or cigg lighter. whip is wiped clean of corrosion, whip is up, longer is better.
Praire City car-to-car: 15-20 km's
Praire Rural car-to-car: four-thirds over the horizon. Probably 60 km's.
Alot further over water.
Less within trees and mountains/valleys.
Google "Ham radio" & "ducting" "inversion" "skip" "sun-spots"
these refer to a condition where a radio signal getting stuck between the upper and lower atmospheres and travel intact for 1000's of km's (canada to mexico for example)
