My recommendations:

32. AL-MOD: SITE (just trust me on this. Do it. It'll ensure the alarm tone
only makes a silly tone, no tx.)
35. STE: on if your simplex channel uses ctcss. Off otherwise (will have no
36. RP-STE: same for repeaters. In either case this is reverse burst which
will basically signal the receiver that you're done transmitting. There
will be about a 200mSec burst at the end of when you transmit with no
audible content (just pl or dpl reverse burst to close the receiver- if the
Rx knows what to do with it the listener will hear no squelch tail)
39. ROGER: off!
37. RPT-RL: I have no idea what this is. It's off on mine.
