Make sure you don't have any audio processors, tone controls or filters turned on such as DSP, noise blankers, etc. It needs to be clean untouched audio to decode properly.

I gave up on AGWPE in frustration.  It worked great with my IC-910H, I could not get it to trigger the PTT switch on my Flex 5000, so I switched to the UZ7HO modem included with UISS.

I am able to decode packets and I can trigger the PTT, but it is not being received by any stations.

1.      What mode should I be using on my Flex?  FM simplex with 5 kHz deviation is what I have selected.
2.      What about the antenna? I am using an antenna with significant gain, and this antenna was able to send packets with my IC-910H with ease.
3.      Is there power out?  Yes, measuring 60 watts.

It's something simple...any ideas?
