I'm programming a repeater for a tone mode where both the transmit and receive tones are the same. I enter "Cross" and the "Tone" and "ToneSql" (146.2). When I "Upload to Radio" all appears correct. If I "Download from radio", I find that the tone mode is changed to "TSQL" and the "Tone" is blank while the "ToneSql" is 146.2. I don't get a reply from the repeater when I test this programming.

On much older versions of CHIRP, I was able to program the repeater to "Cross" not "TSQL" in the case where both tones are the same. With the older version, I was able to get a reply from the repeater.

What's up????

Hi Rick,

CHIRP is changing it because Tone Mode = TSQL and ToneSql = 146.1 is the correct way to program a channel with RX and TX using the same CTCSS tone. The only reason you would use Tone Mode = Cross and Cross Mode = Tone->Tone is when you want RX and TX to use CTCSS but the CTCSS tone for each is different. See either one of the guides linked to here (6.1 and 6.2).
