Hi Jim,

I set 88.5 Hz now as a default CTCSS-tone:

hdwtype=0
rxboost=1
rxctcssrelax=1
txctcssdefault=88.5
rxctcssfreqs=67.0,71.9,74.4,77.0,79.7,82.5,85.4,88.5,91.5,94.8,97.4,100.0,10
3.5,107.2,110.9,114.8,118.8,123.0,127.3,131.8,136.5,141.3,146.2,151.4,156.7,
162.2,167.9,173.8,179.9,186.2,192.8,203.5,210.7,218.1,225.7,233.6,241.8,250.

3.5,107.2,110.9,114.8,118.8,123.0,127.3,131.8,136.5,141.3,146.2,151.4,156.7,
162.2,167.9,173.8,179.9,186.2,192.8,203.5,210.7,218.1,225.7,233.6,241.8,250.

rxctcssoverride=1
carrierfrom=dsp
ctcssfrom=dsp
rxdemod=flat
txprelim=yes

I'm able to open the repeater with any or none subtone. The repeater is
sending 88.5 Hz subtone all the time. It doesn't matter which subtone I use
on my handheld. 

I want the repeater to send out the subtone I use on my handheld, but it
doesn't.

I'm currently at the repeaters site and connected to your repeaters. Maybe
we can have a short chat on RF.

Thank you,
73,
Jann
