That should read ‘squelch settings’. Damn autocorrect.

But when I got my UV-5R here on Martha'sVineyard, I could hit the repeaters in Falmouth on Cape Cod but I got no return confirmation tone or transmissions from anyone.  Someone looked up my call sign, found my phone number, and called me to inform me of that.  I was operating at Squelch level 1, the minimum programmed into it by Baofeng.  Now, using my settings on my 5-, 8-, and 10-watt Baofengs I have no problem.  I use a mag mount mounted outside my second-story window on the air conditioner housing and a Cushcraft Ringo antenna just inside the same window.  Chris Knowles, N1CAK
