I was recently given permission to use a local repeater, and the owner sent me "DPL" tones which I think are Motorolas answer to CTCSS tones. It seems to me that most repeaters list CTCSS tones. Wouldn't the DPL system limit the number or other radios I could connect with?

DPL is a digital code rather than the analog tone used in CTCSS. On many radios it’s called DTCSS or DCS. Almost every radio supports it but some companies have included some non-standard codes. 

The Motorola version of CTCSS is simply called PL, not DPL.
