Forrest,

This is more directed to new users that don't know what tone squelch is or
how it works. What happens is that they program both a TX tone and an RX
tone for a repeater that does not transmit one and then ask "The green
receive light lights up but I can't hear anything. Why doesn't it work?"
Programming no RX tone always works. Programming an RX tone when the other
station doesn't transmit one, or transmits a different tone than the one
programmed, never works (unless your goal is to never hear that station:).

Once it understand how tone squelch works, why it would be needed in a
particular application and it is known that the remote station is
transmitting the matching tone, it is certainly encouraged to use both.
