  • Page 21: Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System (Ctcss)

    CONTINUOUS TONE CODED SQUELCH SYSTEM (CTCSS) You may sometimes want to hear calls only from specific persons. The Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) allows you to ignore (not hear) unwanted calls from other persons who are using the same frequency. To do so, select the same CTCSS tone as selected by the other persons in your group.
  • Page 22: Ctcss Frequency Scan

    CTCSS FREQUENCY SCAN This function scans through all CTCSS frequencies to identify the incoming CTCSS frequency on a received signal. You may find this useful when you cannot recall the CTCSS frequency that the other persons in your group are using. 1 Press [TONE] 2 times to activate the CTCSS function.
  • Page 23: Digital Coded Squelch (Dcs)

    DIGITAL CODED SQUELCH (DCS) Digital Code Squelch (DCS) is another application which allows you to ignore (not hear) unwanted calls. It functions the same way as CTCSS. The only differences are the encode/ decode method and the number of selectable codes. For DCS, you can select from 104 different codes.
