Default Baofeng UV-82

I have programmed several of these radios but this is the first time I have had an issue like this.

I am unable to hit a repeater with this radio. It is transmitting on the frequency in question, but does not click as it hit the repeater when monitoring on another radio.

At this point it is for each channel programmed that has a repeater. I see the +/- symbol - I key up and check on a open radio and hear the key up.

Thinking PL tone, but I have verified that as well.

I did a UV-82 and a GT-3TP and no issues with that one, just the UV-82.

Thoughts?

I am using 20171104 from Chirp.

I have done testing on this today and I am not sure what the problem could be.

I program the repeater transmit channel in direct - monitoring with PL on another radio set this way on purpose and it does key to it (never opens the repeater).

I did same thing on another radio and works without any issues.

I did a reset on the radio - tried again, no change. I have only seen a behavior like this once, and it was on one channel (not all channels).

Oh when I set the other radio with the direct and PL as I did on the 82 - key up, I get the rx on the 82 and hear the repeater open on a regularly programmed radio.

Strangest behavior I have ever seen.

Make sure you actually have the correct frequency programmed. Your "frequency" should be the repeaters output frequency.

ALSO, listening with a second radio nearby usually does not work. You are desensitizing the receiver of the listening radio when you are transmitting with the other one. You overload the receiver, therefore you hear nothing.

Yeah, I know the channels are right since I have been programming it forever and have done it more than once, copied known good configs.

I know the other radios are actually hitting the repeater. It is the strangest thing I have ever seen. I have used the latest (well from Tues) CHIRP and an older one just to give it a shot.

I would go with a bad radio. I have three of the GT-5's a version of the UV-82 and one had no rf ouput. It wouldn't hit the Repeater, but at radio testing at the ham radio club it was on putting out mw on high power.

Yeah. Makes sense. Maybe output is not right. Got to be it.

Thanks,
