I'm a little confused. I fired up the FT-2900R earlier this week--hooked up to a Slim Jim antenna--and I cannot seem to transmit out to any repeaters. I haven't used that radio for a few months. I can receive fine and I can transmit on simplex, but nothing through a repeater.
The antenna sat out all winter, but N9TAX said they are fine as long as the connectors are waterproofed (which they are.)
I'm kind of at a loss...double checked the tones and shifts and everything is set correctly as it was last time I used it. I can hit the repeaters with my HT, so it's not my location or anything.
