I programmed my Baofang UV-5RA radio to my local repeater about less than a 1/4 mile away. When I cue the mic and release, I get a signal from the repeater. However, I can only hear people if I have the moni button pressed. They can hear me clear but I can’t hear them unless I press the moni button.
I also have another baofang uv-5ra radio that I set up to the same repeater, and I can’t transmit to it from my other baofang radio. Same thing happens I have to press the moni button and I can barley hear it.
I programmed my radio to a repeater in San Francisco and I heard them loud and clear.
