The inductance of the strip together with its capacitance to the board could have formed a series resonant circuit shorting your RF.

Thanks for all the information regarding the building of the uBITX. I am more so curious about how the RF trace layout was done. I previously built the mcHF to master SMD soldering, and I found that one of the bands didn't work because RF wasn't going through a trace for some reason. I had to solder a piece of wire to fix it. What it essentially meant is that trace layout on a PCB is a little more complex with RF.
