I certainly concur with the possibility of too high overall deviation as outlined below by Paul Hansen! Excessive peak deviation can totally eliminate the "carrier" and cause squelch dropout. The same can happen even without tone access if the transmitting station is weak into the repeater.
The natural tendency when signals are weak is to talk louder into the microphone. This is absolutely the worst possible thing to do!
That's not necessarily true.

If you have a limiter and compressor in the audio path correctly adjusted then the peak deviation will remain constant. .
