      If BCLO is on you cannot transmit if the radio detects any carrier (not just pl) on the receive frequency... BCLO off will allow transmit with any receive frequency condition..  sorry if you misunderstood my reply..

      It's supposed to work that way. It prevents you from keying up on a busy
      channel when someone with a different PL is transmitting and you don't
      hear them nor look at the busy LED.

      You can turn it off by changing BCLO (busy channel lock out) to off.
