Any chance the SMA 'stinger' on the j-pole (or fem receptacle, dunno
which flavor BaoFeng puts on their radios) is just a bit marginal so
that your j-pole will make contact with the two, but the OEM antennas
work with any of the three? 

Maybe try connecting the j-pole to the radio that doesn't work, dialing
in an idle simplex frequency and listen for it from your other HT when
they're a couple blocks or a half-mile apart?
