I have a Baofeng UV-82L. I used Chirp to program it, it worked fine for a good while but here recently my radio will not transmit out. When I push the PTT button on the radio the screen changes color and everything but it will not hit the repeater to my fire dept. or anything else. I have tried erasing everything and reprogramming and I just get the same issue. Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.

I don't see anything in the image that sticks out as being unusual. I've seen in the past on a UV-5R where 5 bytes get changed and causes TX to be inhibited. When the PTT is pressed, the TX inhibited "bleep" is heard. This doesn't appear to be your case.
This doesn't sound like a CHIRP problem. Are you sure you haven't had some kind of a hardware failure? Maybe a solder joint in the base of the antenna has let go or the final output transistor has failed. Are you still able to hear station OK?

Yea thats the weird thing. I hear everything just fine. Even when I scan I can hear the county over clear as day. I just cant get out for some reason. If I get really close to the repeater I can get out but nothin like I used to. Just doesn't make sense lol.
