i can receive just fine..... but
when i hit the cq macro (i have the correct qso there) it appears to be transmitting
but i never get any responses....
using 20 watts.... never any more.

it must be a setting i do not have set properly?

Depending on your feedline, that might not be a lot of power--you could lose 10 dB or more signal doing that, so you sound like 2 watts instead of 20. You may have more luck answering stations at that power level. Around 50 ft of RG-58 or 75 ft of RG8X will do that. You may be able to get reports on pskreporter.info
