When trying to connect to a repeater which specifies a 'tone in' of 103.5 Hz, do I set the CTCSS using the  rC (receive privacy tones) or tC (transmit privacy codes)? TIA.

You must transmit on the tone the repeater expects or it will ignore your transmission. So, you must set the tC tone.

You can leave the rC tone empty.  You’ll receive anything sent on the frequency.  Later, when you know that your transmissions are being received and relayed by the repeater you could set the rC, but you don’t have to (and I would urge you not to until you’re sure your transmissions are being received.
