Tips for a great answer:
If your update rate was set to 0 seconds, changing it to 5, 10, or 30 seconds will now allow for your DC 30 to communicate consistently with your Astro 220.
Aside from that, most problems with transceiver range relate to background interference, antenna/transmitter damage, and battery life.
