I have a TYT MD-390. I loaded in a code plug for my area.
I can key up and talk to other folks so that part works fine.
However, when I am on a channel like WW English, that I think should be very busy, I hear on talking.
I know I have to key up to open the repeater, but even when I do that I hear no talking.,
If I let it just sit there, from time to time someone will announce their call letters and I can get back to them.
My question is why do I not hear lots of chatter on what I think should be very busy talk groups?
