I thought my Mark V had gone south when it wouldn't transmit. I'm ashamed to
admit the radio is OK. My stupidity was overwhelming my intelligence, or to
put it another way I was having a "dumb attack". I was monitoring 2m for
multiplier spots when a call came in. I reached to turn down the volume on
the Mark V and unknowlingly I turned down the mic gain. Ignoring the HF
audio, I copied the traffic and went back to HF only to find out I wasn't
getting out.(no transmit). After checking and rechecking, (or so I thought)
I assumed the rig had died, so I shut it down and left the station for about
2 hours. Thinking I should give it another go, I turned on the rig and
immediately spied the mic control turned back to zero. Viola! After
resetting the nob correctly, everything is OK.

Thanks all for the comments,
