Repeater pl tone


Recommended Posts

To my understanding when using a PL tone on normal channels anyone using the same PL tone or no PL tone can hear you. Does this work the same with a repeater? Can I listen to repeater channel 18 with no PL tone and hear people even though the repeater has a PL tone of “x”?

No, the PL tone is a filter. If you have it enabled you will only hear people with the PL tone enabled. Everyone else will still hear both sides fine. The repeater will ignore any inputs without the PL tone. You will hear it fine. However, using it will defeat having squelch enabled. Think of it as a sql filter. The radio won't open unless it breaks the sql level or matches the tone. So when listening to a repeater you can use either.
