[chirp_users] What is wrong here?

Did you ever plug in a speaker microphone?
My UV5R is known for sticking inside and it will only transmit the microphone via the speaker microphone.
I don't want to open it up to try and unstick the contact inside the jack.

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,

  Do you have CTCSS tones set on the receive side.
  If so, remove them.
  It’s possible the repeaters aren’t sending a tone back to you..

    Attached is the image of my 'working' radio - problem is, it's not working right. This an older Baofeng UV-82L much prior to the recent FCC rule changes. 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.)

    Anyone ???
