I also have one ,V71a,in the garage on shelf. I might give this a shot. I plan on setting up two HT’s and monitor that way. I was thinking the duplexes might be bad, but trying to think, head hurts now 😳. Probably something simple.

i just got a FULL DUPLEX HT last week but only had a chance to use it once. its been so cold and windy i don't  want to go out on the deck and play. i did go the day i got the radio and made one contact using the full duplex feature. the full duplex really helps. I have a Kenwood V71A that can run full duplex and i plan and giving that a try the soon as spring weather get here in NJ

Some satellites have transmit and receive at 90 degrees from each other.  When receiving a sat, try transmitting after rotating the antenna 90 degrees.  I’m a newbie to satellites also, but it seemed to work.
