I assume you meant EDT.  ALso, 9600 baud sounds just like open squelch to
the untrained ear.  It is best to set the squelch, then you will hear it
open with a burst of white noise every 10 seconds at least.  Any people
that digipeat will be additional bursts in addition.  But you should have
heard voices on the voice pass... :-(

I hope my times were right..
