This is a new rig and I may be incorrect in my question as I am not extensively familiar with it's workings however, the panel button is simply labeled "Tone"
The manual officially calls it a "RPT Tone Frequency"
So this leaves one to question what "tone" as labelled on the rigs front panel is supposed to mean exactly.
Playing around on a simplex frequency and using an HT as a reciever with CTCSS turned on, I scanned for a PL tone on the HT when the "tone" button was activated on the TS 700 rig.
This test revealed that when the "tone" button is depressed on the rig it activates the HT reciever when the PL scan arrived at 179.9
So I suppose my question is can this somehow be changed to activate the HT reciever at say 123.0 instead of 179.9?
Perhaps it is only capable of tone burst operation, but the way I read the manual, it says the button is for operating a "Rpt Tone Frequency"
Sign me off as confused and point me in the right direction.
