Default Baofeng UV5R V2+

Hi there, long story short, recently got my permit and got a radio and was trying to get contact on a repeater with a few buddies,

I can heard the conversation but couldn't transmit, repeater tower 146.9400 -.60 call VE7LRB

I had one of my buddies that was broadcasting on the same repeater come over and check everything i had set, even compared them side by side
and still couldn't get it to transmit. I had setup a few FRS channels to be able to coordinate with fellow off roaders that don't have permits yet and
it transmitted fine. Side note i have a nagoya 8.5" attached as well.

can someone help me please?

Is there a tone required to access the repeater?

Here in Australia some, but not many, of the repeaters require a tone to access them.

Edit - Upon re-reading your post, could it simply be that you are too far away to key into the repeater? If you are on the limit, you can often receive the repeater buy not transmit into it.

do you hav e a scanner or radio receiver that you can listen to you transmit. In Burns Lake there is another repeater, 146.72, - offset, no tone. http://www.hamradiobc.com/twometer.php?sort=loc
Try another. Are you programming by hand or do youi use Chirp or VIP software?

Have another radio tune to 146.340 and go into monitor mode, then transmit on yours to make sure you're at least transmitting on the right frequency. If you are, double-check the PL/DCS settings like liability suggested.
