DCS pretty please?

Jon Member
It would really be helpful to have DCS support on the Flex. I used to use my local VHF/UHF repeaters but now they've switched to DCS from CTCSS. I've had to buy a handie to get into them but DCS but would certainly like to be able to be using it via my transverter, remote and all that jazz.

    I would like to see DCS for future compatibility. I would also like PL tone squelch. Not because we have sharing of repeater frequencies as much as keeping the receiver from un-squelching on noise. I really can't leave a two meter receiver open because the squelch breaks so often when there is no desired signal present.

    I whole heartedly agree that DCS and PL tone squelch would be substantial enhancements for VHF and UHF operations. All my local 900 MHz repeaters have DCS, which has precluded me from employing a transverter with my 6700 on that band. I'm sure that a growing number of future 2M/440MHz repeaters will also use DCS and PL tones.

    I agree that both DCSS and tone squelch would be very handy. I'm using a Q5 5 band transverter on a Flex 6600. Works great, but ca't access certain PAP system repeaters due to lack of DCS.

    I just got a transverter and was really sad to see no DCS support. Guess I shouldn’t have assumed it would be there. 🙁
