Re: Re: AO51 Digipeater Trial Test



Yes, I had the radio set for full duplex operation.  The only problem is
that after a couple of packets, it wouldn't TX anymore and had to turn the
radio off and turn it back on to get it to transmit again.  Is there a way
around that?  I'm using a Kenwood TH-D7A.
