Transverter help

Hope someone can help.   Im attempting to use a Q5 Signal 144 MHz XVTR with my Flex 6400. Ive connected thee two units together according to instructions.  Ive set up the XVTR on the Flex, and Ive configured a memory to access a nearby repeater.  So far so good.  When I key the mic, I get tones back from the repeater. I can hear QSO's on the repeater.  The XVTR bargraph shows power output. My inline Power/SWR meter shows low SWR and proper power output to the antenna.   No one can hear me!!   I have to have a setting goofed up somewhere. Any ideas for a newbie?  Im attaching a screen shot of my SDR screen.  As a side issue, if I simply substitute a different  rig in place of the flex it works fine. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Your screen shot shows "PC" as the selected microphone source. Perhaps you're using a physical microphone, and you've just not selected it as the active audio source (BAL, or MIC)?

    In the second control panel down on the right, the mic source is set to PC and DAX is enabled. If you are using the mic plugged into the radio, the mic source should be MIC and DAX should be disabled. As it is configured, you have no connection from mic audio to the radio.
