Question

I'm new to the GMRS THING,  have my license for about a week now.  My question is looking through the repeater listing on my gmrs.com I see some listed as owned by a club, but they list at certain times they open to nonmembers transmitting a traveling tone.  Is this the same thing as a dcs or ctcss tone? For example in Arizona listing for Phoenix 50 it lists the frequency and the analog tone. Being a club owned repeater that opens up to nonmembers on Tuesdays with a traveling tone do I need to program a different tone or is the tone listed all I need?

WELCOME!!

Looks like you are referring to the Phoenix High Power 550 repeaters; I do not see a tone listed for general use (which is normal because they only want Members to know the tone)

On Tuesdays set your transmit CTCSS to 141.3 and you should have access that day.

Thank you for the information, that is what I was thinking but didn't want to assume that.  Not being a member of the club I kinda figured that members have an alternative tone to access the repeater. Next time I am in the coverage area on a Tuesday I will have to try it out
