I did call yesterday, but they obviously requested that I send in the radio and modules for repairs with a 7 day turn around, not including shipping time. Anyway, I decided to explore my theory abit more in that, I knew it had to be coming from the headset after the testing I did. I am happy to say I found the problem!!!!

Visited a local hobby with all the components after work and needless to say, hooked everything up and it worked perfectly!! (you know how it goes, visit the doctor and the pain stops)

Anyway, I know I am not going carzy (just yet) and had to figure out what was going on. So while I am explaining to the guys what's going on, I started giving my radio some small taps at the base I notice the LED's flashing on the RX and the same problem came back. We then took my module out and placed it in a new radio . Again, it worked perfect until we started tapping the radio. (small taps off course) This confirmed it was the module.

I know that meronr suggested the antenna cable inside the TX, but it was not that. It seem to be the upper circuitry deck in the module that modulates the frequency (adjusting dial on the module) which is held to the lower deck by "plug in pins" I took this out and fit it back in snugly.

It works perfectly again! Gave the radio some solid taps using the ball of my palm (not to damage the radio) and no change!!!!

A steady signal all the way.

Thanks again guys for all the suggestions. It helped to steer me in the right direction.
