Repeater Connection Question

Question

New user here and I am trying to jump on a local repeater. I don't seem to be getting any response from the repeater so it's either down or I don't have my programming correct. Can someone take a look at my settings and let me know if I made a mistake? I have attached a screenshot of my settings in CHIRP. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Radio: BTECH GMRSv2

Repeter: https://mygmrs.com/repeater/5364

I'm not seeing anything that stands out as an issue, though I'm looking on a phone screen.

Are you getting some indication that the radio is indeed transmitting on channel 31? The v2 should be able to create some new tx channels, but I might try manually programming the tone via the menu in slot 30 (rept22)...t-ctcs should be the menu item you want. The v1 and 50x1 did not allow new tx channels, and a firmware glitch preventing tx is a distant possibility.

That aside, the description looks like it's a rather short range setup, and may be up or down sporadically....it being offline temporarily is entirely possible

I was able to figure it out with the help of another user. It seems CHIRP was pulling in the settings from my radio wrong and populating all the fields. We were able to reformat it to only include the necessary fields. Thank you everyone for your replies.
