I feel really stupid....
I feel really stupid. I am able to hear very clearly, however when I attempt to transmit I am not being heard on my Yaesu FM Transceiver VX-8? Do I have something wrong in my settings?

Do you get audio out in simplex or no modes at all? If so, do you have the repeater offset and tone programmed correctly? Do you have the Bluetooth turned on with no Bluetooth paired?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I get audio in all modes, I'm able to listen to various repeaters so I think they are programmed correctly. Blue Tooth is not turned on or paired.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When I transmit I get no response from the other users on the frequency I'm listening to.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

I mean if you transmit on a simplex frequency, are you able to be heard?

Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you hearing the repeater squelch tail when you unkey, indicating that you are getting into the repeater?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have tried simplex frequency and have the same result.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you have a scanner that you can program 146.520 in and then transmit and see if you can hear yourself?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can set frequency to 146.520, when I transmit I hear nothing.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

On another radio you hear nothing when you transmit?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I only have one radio, Im sorry I miss understood.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Oh, okay. Well, the only way to tell would be to listen in on another radio. It may be that you are not getting into the repeater. Are you hearing the repeater squelch tail when you unkey, indicating that you are getting into the repeater?

No
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

So you are probably not programmed correctly. Do you have your offset set correctly, +/- 600 and the tone set?

What is a repeater frequency in your area?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
146.700 Menifee currently I'm in Riverside and there is a repeater here but I do not have the frequency with me.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay, so your receive frequency should be 146.700 and when you transmit, it should show on the display that you are transmitting on 146.100. There may be a tone, oftentimes 100.0 Hz. Is that how you have it programmed?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It does.
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Actually, the tone on that repeater is 103.5.

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you have the tone programmed and turned on during transmit?

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When I Transmit it reads 146.100
Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Does it also show that you have a CTCSS tone on?

Electronics Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

There are a ton of open repeaters in Riverside County, see the link below.
