How do you hit a repeater?

3 Answers. The simple answer is to transmit on the repeater’s input frequency, saying something like ” < your callsign > testing” and listen for the repeater’s courtesy beep (assuming there is one) on its output. If you’ve heard the beep, then you’ve hit the repeater.

Can Hear repeater but Cannot transmit?

If you can hear a repeater, but your signal is not accessing the repeater, the first thing to check is to make sure that your offset is set properly. The offset is the difference between the repeater’s receive frequency and the transmit frequency. On the 2-meter band, the standard offset is 600 kHz.

When to enable or disable frequency shift on Baofeng?

When enabled, this feature will automatically lock the keypad if the unit is not used for more than 8 seconds. Pressing the # key for 2 seconds will unlock.

Is there a way to cut out conversations on Baofeng?

In person to person mode (aka simplex), using this option with option #10 can cut other conversations out, only allowing you to hear the person with the matched DCS code. If transmitting to a repeater, you will need to set this option to the DCS value for the repeater you are attempting to communicate through to ‘wake it up’.

What are the settings for the BaoFeng handheld?

Use wide bandwidth (25kHz) or narrow bandwidth (12.5kHz). I have this setting on ‘WIDE’ but it may vary for your area. This setting controls how long the backlight stays lit after no actions are taken on the unit.
