hmmm, I dont recall the 706 being capable to decoding PL in that confguration..
Perhaps I am mistaken

Subject: [App_rpt-users] Issue with Remote Base RX PL Decode

Background: IC-706Mk2g connected via URI to radio data port set to 9600 bd. All functions controlled by DSP. Problem: The issue is controlling RX PL Decode in remote base operation. The “r” parameter in memory definition only sets RX PL in the radio via CI-V. DSP RX PL is not affected by this parameter or the *40 remote base command. The “rxctcssoverride” parameter in USBRADIO.CONF is global, and overrides the memory definitions. Currently, the only way to access a RX PL enabled repeater that does not encode PL on transmit is to set “rxctcssoverride=1”. However, this also prevents setting RX PL Decode on channels that require it for proper access/control, such as simplex links, which must be protected with PL on both ends. Request: Implement the “r” parameter in memory definition properly, such that when it is present, RX PL Decode is active, and when it is not present, RX PL Decode is not active. If this is done,  each memory definition will control the feature. P.S. As new “abusers” of app_rpt, we have successfully implemented a 2-site network with 2 public repeaters (27750 in town & 27748 at 9K’ ASL), linked via internet, and a 706 remote base which permits us to slot in other systems for public  events and drills. It is quite flexible in its current state, and is planned to encompass other county sites in the near future.   Gary Bonebrake W5BIEmergency CoordinatorSandoval County ARESw5bi at amsat.org
