Default Antena problem, Optic 6, 72Mhz

The antena on my Optic 6 72Mhz will not unscrew or tighten all the way. I can't pull in out so it must not be loose. I have no problem when I'm flying. ???

Keep it facedown on a table and unscrew it, check it out

Antenna passes down through upper holder attached to faceplate and screws onto a bolt, secured with a nut,to a mounting plate on the rear cover as per attached photo.
(ex:TX Mode change - Hitec Optic 6 & Flash 5X ( DIY pictorial )
If antenna has been overtightened at any time, the bolt and nut may spin on the mounting plate andthen be difficult to remove without exerting a little sideways force to try and lock the bolt (e.g. place TX facedown on table as suggested post 2.)
After removing antenna, open case, as above, and tighten bolt firmly to plate so as to get a could connection when the antenna is replaced. Tighten antenna firmly but not so as to overrtighten and make subsequent removal difficult. A loose TX antenna is often the source of intermittant glitches as the antenna flops around making and breaking connection. Range Problem - Transmitter Antenna cleaning
