Yep.

The purpose of Command Mode makes is to make your local node command decoder 
ignore any DTMF, and instead forward it over the link to the far end where it 
gets decoded. When you are in commend mode, you should hear an extra beep in 
the courtesy tone sequence on the node you are accessing. You must remember 
to exit Command Mode when you are finished commanding the local node. If you 
do not, no audio will passed in command mode.

0 is shorthand for the last valid node number entered.

If you connect to node 1234 using *31234, you can go in to command mode on 
node 1234 by dialing *40, or disconnect from node 1234 by dialing *10.
