I have just bought a Kenwood TH-G71 dual band HT. I have set several freqs in and I get a strong signal strength reading, but alas, no voice...what am I doing wrong?  Squelch is set at 2 and I have even reset it to 1 with no change...help!  Thanks, John

I'm sure you checked that the audio amp is working (with volume up, push MON button to unsquelch receiver).  Is the tone squelch function enabled on those freqs?  If it is enabled, but is not the same tone as the transmission (or if the transmission is not tone encoded), the receiver audio won't open up.  Try disabling the CT (tone squelch) function and see what happens.
