[chirp_users] Fwd: baofeng 82c

Just an idea. When I moved to where I live now I had no idea as to the frequencies in use so I  went to a local ham club and found someone who kept an up to date list of frequencies and was nice enough to give me a copy. Maybe you can check around in your area and have similar luck.

Dang, thought I had it figured out. Search and Rescue in my area doesn't use any ham frequencies, just frequencies between 136-174mhz. I have 128 channels in my kenwood tk-2170 that includes a 5 county area. I'm probably looking at months to figure it out. The kenwood shows None in the QT/DQT Dec, so I don't know if I should leave the Tone to the default of 88.5. Tedious typing as I only have 17 of the 128 keyed so far and looks like I'll have to change some when I figure what might work.  thx,-jm

Not exactly. TSQL is used to TX with a particular CTCSS tone and to RX
with the same CTCSS tone. You never need to have a tone to RX so you
can receive just fine using setting Tone Mode to Tone and setting the
Tone column to the desired CTCSS tone. If you program a RX tone and
the other station does not transmit the matching (on none at all as in
the case for many ham repeaters), you will never hear anything. None
always works.
