i'm not familiar with the model (i'm sure there are some here that are) to tell you exactly where to find the setting.

 

that said, since it works when you hold the 'monitor' button, that sounds like it's something with your squelch setting, either looking for a tone, or level set too high. there's some info on page 6 here (if you don't have a manual)

You likely may have changed the tone settings or OST. If you are unsure what happened or how, it may be best to simply re-program the radio with an older code plug you know works. This would rule out the user (programmed) side if the radio still does not give audio.

I'm not familiar with code plugs.  I only have the one GMRS radio.  Can you suggest the software that I need?

Really liked my 880 until I toasted it by ripping the antenna off and trying to transmit.. sizzle.  Have replaced with 8180.  Below is info on all you should need for the 880.

 

Software

KPG-49D

Thanks for all of your help.  I now have audio, but I can't transmit and for some reason, I can't program my radio from my computer.

Happy holidays

sounds like the RJ45 port (where the mic/programing cable plugs in) is bad, or one of the solder pads cracked. Simple fix if you know how to.
