What are Travel Tones, and do they differ from the input/output tones?
Also, what is ORI?
I've seen both of these on the repeater search info with a "yes" or "no" after them.
Just. Wondering. Thanks for your help.

GMRS travel is 141.3 and is one of the various PL tones available. the travel tone allows for easier travel from repeater to repeater and could work well with the ORI= Open repeater initiative. Our local repeaters use travel tones and ORI with advance permission, but were all open to formal "open air request as well. My repeater operates in mixed tone mode. PL tone to open the repeater and DPL on the output.  hope this helps.
