Squelch Level
-  Squelch silences the receiver when there is no signal.
-  UHF Sensitivity can be varied from .1 to .3 mV
-  VHF Sensitivity is constant. 1 > 9 = .1 mV
-  Level 0 = Open Squelch
-  There is little difference between settings.
          Level 5 is recommended.
 
 

0 > 9
1    STEP Frequency Step
-  Amount of frequency change when using Up/Down arrows or when scanning in VFO Mode.  
 
 
2.5 / 5 / 6.25 / 10 /

-  Prevents interference from signals on the same frequency.
-  The squelch will open only if the incoming signal is coded with the same tone required by your receiver.

11   R-CTCS Rec - Continuous Tone Coded Squelch
-  Prevents interference from signals on the same frequency.
-  The squelch will open only if the incoming signal is coded with the same tone required by your receiver.
- Note: Not all repeaters requiring a tone for access transmit a tone back to you. Leave this function turned OFF unless you are absolutely sure it is needed.
