How close were you?
Are both radios new?
How good a match did you get when tuning the antennas?
Check coax and antenna mounts for shorts.
Is either radio SSB and are you sure you're on AM?
Do you have another radio you can test?

Sounds like a bad mic. Do you have a friend who will loan you another mic to to try?

Doesn't matter. We just had to get a new mic for Amy's brand new 2 meter ham radio.
There are still other possibilities though,
