[chirp_users] What is wrong here?

according to Chirp there is nothing set for tone or DTCS on the GMRS
channels (frequencies) lines 31 - 52l the only exception is line 53
where I have a positive offset for the local GMRS repeater.
The problem is that I'm sending a carrier but no voice on the carrier.
Reception is fine all the way 'round,

I am both a licensed ham (KG5HEJ) and GMRS (WQYM836) operator. Though I recognize the legalities of using this radio, it's use in the GMRS bands is primarily for monitoring local tourists and providing them with help.
>>That all out of the way. RX/TX on any of the ham bands is without problem, I can talk with anyone on our local repeater system, or simplex, without a problem (barring mountains which are occasional problems) on the GMRS freqs, I'm seeing (on my BCT15X scanner) a carrier being transmitted in the appropriate freq but hearing no voice on the carrier on both the one GMRS repeater channel and simplex. I and a friend have been all over these settings and I hope we're just missing the obvious (obvious to someone else.)
