[App_rpt-users] URI active low?

He did say the COR #2 has a pullup resistor connected.

According to the wiring below you have the controller ptt connected to 
the ctcss input on the URI.
You have the ctcss input set to 'no' so the URI will not see the ptt 
from the controller.

I dont know what he pinouts on the controller are with out looking at 
the docs but do the following:

Connect the URI ptt to the controller cor input.
Connect the URI cor input (pin 8) to the controllers PTT output.
Connect the URI TX audio out to the controller RX audio input.
Connect the URI RX audio input to the controller TX audio output.

Make sure the controller port access is configured for carrier squelch 
(COR) active low only and not CTCSS and COR.

Set the node usbradio to use carrierfrom=usbinvert.

Restart the node.
