TYT MD-9600 VFO Mode

I have successfully programmed the radio and use it in both the digital and analog modes, but when I go to VFO mode I am unable to transmit. The radio indicates it is in the VFO mode, I am able to set whatever frequency I would like within the 2m or 70cm bands but when I attempt to transmit the radio emits a load beep. I cannot find any settings in the CPS software that is allowing or disallowing VFO transmission or any settings within the Radio Menu itself. Does anyone have any experience with this.

Still experiencing the same concern until now?

You can turn beep off by programming a button to switch tone on/off. Factory needs to modify firmware to allow tone volume adjustment.
