[arm-allstar] BF888 VOX wont turn off

I have been getting some random unintended transmissions from the node and I really don't know if it has anything to do with the VOX or not. At times it would unintentionally key another node I was connected to and I would get the courtesy tone back. I am running TSQLCH on my node radio and all the radios I contact it with so I have both the transmit tone and the receive tone decode enabled. This seems to happen more mobile, but also happens in my shack but less often. Since I couldn't figure out the VOX, I decided to remove the mic from the BF888 and it seems better, but I have not been mobile with it since I removed the mic. Chris - W6CS - 73.

Big question - is the VOX actually working? The PTT probably overrides it
in node operation??? Also try using the real BF888 programming software
and/or set the VOX timeout to 0 or some real low number.
