Does anyone explain how to program this radio in simplex mode?

Thanks

I'm not quite sure I entirely understand your question.  If you're asking about disabling the Auto Repeater Offset, I believe that option is adjusted in the menu system of the radio.  I found it to be too much of a pain in the butt to do it that way.  My solution was to programme one of the "P" buttons on the mic to perform the function of cycling through "+", "-" and "no offset".  This allows the auto offset feature to work by default but gives me the ability to override it if I have to (and not hunt through the menus!)

Your response is correct.  Our local 2M club is getting involved with Red Cross and wanted a few simplex frequenceis to use in town to keep the repeator clear for emergnecy traffic.  I to did not want to mess with the menu.  I will try reprograming the mike button.  Thanks much for your help!

The Automatic Repeater Shift is programmed at the factory according to the "standard" repeater frequencies.  If you are using "standard" simplex frequencies, the radio should default to simplex mode.  So, it sounds like you should double-check and make sure that the frequencies you have chosen for simplex fall within the area of hte bandplan set aside for simplex operation.  That way, you won't be inadvertently transmitting on a repeater input frequency, possibly a repeater that someone is using for other emergency communication. (and you wouldn't hear the output because you're in simplex mode!)

just my 2cents.
