Re: Headphones on AO-51



I'm not familar with the W32A  but I know it is full duplex. What do you 
hear? Just static? Try a lower power setting next time and see if anything 
changes...or try a different diplexer if you can. This might give us a 
direction the head for an answer. How about SO50 or AO27, same problem? Can 
you hear a local UHF repeater while transmitting on VHF with the arrow. How 
about with the ht antenna?

Very interested in what you uncover, sure we can figure this out....
