BTW, it has to be the right tone frequency too, not just turning TSQL on or off.

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.
