I planned to fly VFR from EGTK to EGBB to test the new set up. I first logged into EGBB_APP and did a radio check, which failed. I then logged into EGTT_CTR with Bones and Gerry. On the channel display, when I spoke my T indicator came up, and I saw both Bones and Gerry's boxes turn yellow. However, pure silence prevailed. I looked for a means to transmit text, but that facility doesn't seem to appear any more. At that point I decided to quit and consult this channel today. While writing this I've just gone into the sound module setup and spotted the default settings on both channels are set to mute! I'll try to test the unmuted setting before next week. Frank T.
