Helios AM Module Issues?

Has anyone ever had issues with their Helios AM module?

It seems to me that every once in a while mine will just stop communicating. If I pull the module and replace it, or just jiggle it a little, it starts to work again.

I've never dropped the radio and the module is usually in my pit box or my radio so I don't think I damaged it and it's really intermittent.

Has anyone else had issues?

Check to see if any of the pins on the radio bent... Or if the crstal may not be in securely.

I have had mine since Nov. Last year and never had any problems with it till this day (knock on wood :lol but then again I never remove that module out since I'm still running the AM kyosho board...

Have you tried borrowing someone else's module to see if it'll do the same?
