K0MTB: Are you using a duplexer with one antenna or 2 seperate antennas?

Your post is somewhat difficult to decode, BUT if I were to guess you are using 2 seperate antennas, and
If you are using seperate antennas, I would guess that you do not have sufficient isolation between Tx and Rx. It works fine when close by because the signal strength of your signal is strong enough to over come the repeater transmitter. Even a ways away a 50w mobile will not have the strength to over come the adjacent, close by transmitter.

For best results I strongly recomend buying a duplexer, along with DOUBLE shielded jumpers to connect the duplexer to the T/Rx radios and double shielded cable from duplexer to antenna.
Interoperatablity is not a technology, it is an attitude!!!
