The fault that wasn’t

I thought my Baofeng UV-3R+ had developed a fault today. Whenever I changed channel the rig went into transmit.

Eventually I realized that the VOX was turned on. The clicks from the rotary channel knob were triggering it! Doh! I think I’m getting too dumb for this game.

    I had the same thing happen to me. I now check the setting after I do any updates with the computer
    to make sure the setting does not get changed.
    Have a good day.
