[chirp_users] TSQL / CTCSS

In CHIRP, Tone is what you would set for transmitting to a repeater. ToneSql only affects receive, and isn't generally used. 

But regardless of what values those might be set to, it's the Tone Mode setting that determines what happens when you're transmitting or receiving. If it's set to Tone or None, you'll hear everything on the frequency. Otherwise you'll be using that monitor button.

CTCSS stands for Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System, which is what you're using whenever there are tones involved during transmit or receive. Anything else is just a shorter version of the same, mainly because ten syllables is a hassle.
