I just brought my Q5 L144-28/HP150 online after rearranging my shack ... I'm getting bad signal reports (scratchy & distorted) ... I can hit a local repeater without issue and I'm hearing all of the activity ... I'm running a 6600M with a Heil PR40 mike ... anyone provide any insight, settings etc. ... I do not want to **** up my Q5 ... thx ...

    Hey Mike,

    What would the FDX setup be to listen to myself using XVTA? I've done this for SSB on HF but never 2M FM.

    The same, except use an unused antenna port to listen to yourself.

    If it was me, I would use the 28Mhz IF frequency (subtract 116Mhz from your 2M frequency).

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
