[chirp_users] TSQL / CTCSS

CTCSS usually indicates the tone you must send to activate the repeater.  TSQL usually means a tone must be sent from the repeater or other party so you can hear THEIR signal.  You never NEED to use TSQL. The only time it comes in handy is if you are getting some kind of RFI or interference from another repeater.  Turn TSQL off and you will probably be able to hear the repeater properly. Go to www.miklor.com for answers to FAQs.

I have no where else to ask this question.

Is TSQL the same as CTCSS?

The reason I am so intrigued is about this is

The other day my UV-5R was in scan mode and a repeater in Huntsville continually stopped my scan with a carrier or tone, not sure which yet. But I heard no audio. No matter where I set the squelch, even to 0 I got no audio. However, if I hit the Moni button I could hear the guys talking.

What was happening here?

Thanks in advance. 

In 3 weeks I'll be W9BOQ if the FCC grants my vanity call sign.
