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:).
