Not sure your transceiver experience so please don't take offense.

You will only hear static on receive as the receive function is off during your transmission (SIMPLEX radio can't do both at the same time). Static is always there when listening. Use the squelch adjustment until the static disappears. Close signals will still come through over the squelch but don't turn the squelch up too high or you will block those signals as well.

Did this solve the problem.
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.
