I would be more suspicious of the Baofeng being off frequency. I have
heard reports that Baofengs will not work with the DTMF decoders on
some repeaters due to transmitting off-frequency DTMF tones. It would
not surprise me if the CTCSS/PL tone was also off. Motorolas tend to
have very good CTCSS decoders (meaning they'll reject off-frequency
tones), so you're likely to see a problem like this surface more when
using a Motorola than a Baofeng receiver.
