I've never set repeater delay. I would suggest you both need better antennas. You don't say which band.

Sometimes he could hear me but I couldn't hear him, then I could hear him and he couldn't hear me, is this an antenna issue ? We are using the rubber duckies that came with them, I also saw a setting for repeaters delay on the settings section, it is set to off, does that need to be changed ? Thankyou ken
