[App_rpt-users] CTCSS and carrier squelch

Yeah, that did it ;) Thank you!

Since we run two permanently linked repeaters I wonder whether it is
possible to "passthrough" the incoming PL not only local but through the
other repeater using IAX-protocol? Are there any extensions in IAX that
would allow to add some payload like PL-tone-information? That would make it
possible to extend our "subtone-user-group-calling" across more repeaters.

73,
Jann
