My UV-5R stopped receiving signal - that what I thought at first.
After reading many threads here is what I figured out: if I hold the MONI button then I can receive signal
I have 2 UV-5R - exact same model and firmware versions - and I did the following without better results while listening on 162.550 (weather Chanel that I usually listen to) :
- Downloading the firmware from the other one and uploading it in the faulty one.
- Switched the antennas - just to be sure it's not broken
- Changed the squelch and tried every value from 0 to 9 (my default was 5).
- Reset "ALL" the faulty UV-5R
I understand that the MONI button "bypass" the squelch, that said. What should I do to fix the faulty one ? The other one works just fine...
Thanks for helping.
Here is my configuration :
