Does it have a citizen reply block on them as was just reading that so as to not have out side interference with a closed Chanel like In a quary or something. And that's why I can hear them but not transmit to them.

It is possible that your 41s is using a ctcss or dcs to stop interference.

Hey there!
I need some help please with my Icom IC 41S! I have a similar problem described here. I can receive calls and I can hear the messages but when I try to send a message / call / talk, they can't hear me at all! The funny thing is that in the other radio I'm trying to call / message, the receiving transmission symbol (top left, like a lighting bolt) flashes when I press my PTT button, but they can't hear anything. I have read the manual, played with it quite a bit and know pretty much all the functions, but I'm starting to believe it might be a hardware thing.
Anyways, anyone knows anything about this, heard anything like this? Also, there's something in the manual called RX Channels which I cannot seem to get in to program. Could this have anything to do with it?
Thxs in advance! I'm quite desperate as I need this radio big time and can't, don't want to buy another one!
Cheers.
Juan

1. It is possible that the microphone element is faulty. The radio will still transmit a carrier, just no audio.

2. It is possible that all units are using CTCSS, and your CTCSS Tone is not the same as the other units.

Also, there's something in the manual called RX Channels which I cannot seem to get in to program. Could this have anything to do with it?
NO.

Look closely at the display. It is possible your Tone Squelch is on. Press and hole 'left button 1' (squelch) and cycle through the three selections. Off, T-SQL and (bell icon) Alarm. Refer to paragraph 7, page 21 onwards HERE.

It's a common thing to accidentally press and hold this button mistakenly as the PTT button and activate it.

Shakes.
