The plug does not go all the way in on some of the newer radios... trim a
bit off the side with a knife and it will go all the way in..

Hi Jim.  You are always quick to respond with helpful advice.  Thanks!

Yeah, I encountered that plug seating issue with my own UV-5RA so with the
UV-5R radio I really put some pressure on the connector - even trimmed the
plug.  But no joy.  So maybe a defective connector on the radio side.
