Hi Jonas,

You friend probably made a mistake on the information that he sent
you. It is unusual to not program an encodde (TX) CTCSS tone without a
matching decode (RX) CTCSS tone on simplex. What I would do is program
2 channels and upload them to your radio...

Channel 1: Tone Mode = Tone | Tone = 131.8
Channel 2: Tone Mode = TSQL | ToneSql = 131.8

Try them both. Keep the one that works.
