XVTR will not raise repeater

JimJim Member ✭✭
edited February 21 in SmartSDR for Windows

My Flex 6400 and Q5 2 meter transverter will not raise my local repeater.  Yes I have the correct repeater settings set up in the Flex. When I key the mic I have good power output, but I do not get tones back from the repeater. Any ideas? Ive attached screen shots of my current set up.
Thanks in advance Jim KC3KRZ

    Jim, Does your repeater need a subaudible tone? (CTCSS).  If it does, without it you won't key up your repeater as most require a tone on your transmit signal.

    I assume you are trying to hit the W3GV repeater image And your screen shot shows the correct Freq, Offset & direction, and it appears you have the correct tone (186.3). Can you hear activity on the repeater? Have you double-checked the feedline/2m antenna?

    actually I have 2 local repeaters that are linked..... the 146.610 and the 146.820, the later of which is only 2 miles from me. Both use identical settings. I can hear conversations on both repeaters, and I can actually talk on both repeaters, however with very poor reception reports..,.... almost like its not on frequency.

    This has happened to me as well.  I rebooted the Transverter, 6600 and the Maestro and then re-loaded my stored transverter profile.  Once I did that, it all worked correctly even though I could hear the repeater and people could hear me on reverse.  The PL was set correctly too.  Something was confused somewhere.
