The easy answer is to turn off the "roger beep" on your radio. It only 
has a function on CB radio, and that function is to make more annoying 
noises. Repeaters with a courtesy tone use it to signal the end of 
transmission and let others know it's ok to talk. It's a way of saying 
"over" when you end a transmission.

To separate the repeaters, set up one channel in the radio with one pl 
tone, and another with the other tone. Only the channel with the correct 
tone setting will key the repeater.
