Default ICOM IC-F5021-muted?

Pardon my ignorance on this radio. I am a volunteer fireman and purchased this new, programmed radio from a reputable dealer and installed it today. Everything seems to be working, scan, channel selection, signal, power...but this radio hasn't made a peep all day. I'm certain there is traffic on my scanned channels but I'm not hearing any of it. In the user manual it mentions a MONI (AUDI) key. There is an icon in the manual as well showing the panel description that says this icon will be lit when the unit is in audible mode.

My question is, how do I "unmute" this radio to recieve traffic and communicate? Is it something I need to take back to my dealer? Its a hundred mile round trip so if I can fix it myself I'd rather do that.

Once again, sorry for my ignorance. Thanks in advance,


BVFD 134

Have someone from your dept do a radio check and see if you pick it up on scan. Not sure if your dept does nightly tone/pager radio checks that's a good time to sit in your veh.
I'd have to go look at my settings to see what my scan settings are at?

Just to be clear, you're saying that the channels programmed in work fine (TX and RX) when you're selected on the channel? Just not receiving traffic when scanning?

Or do they not work at all?
