Default TK-3180 Portable Help

Trying to program a TK-3180 using KPG-92D.

Need to program the portable to transmit a beep when it hits a repeater.

Thanks!

Jeff

I beilive something like a PTT transmit beep, letting the guy know that he is hitting the repeater. Hopefully that helps. Thats how it was explained to me. Thanks!

It sounds like what you actually want is the repeater to beep when the radio user unkeys (lets go of the push-to-talk switch). I don't believe there's any way in programming for the 2180/3180 to know if it hit the repeater or not.

I know there is a PTT proceed tone. And a release tone. The PTT proceed tone is on every frequency, right?

The proceed tone is generated in the radio and simply tells you when the radio has finished sending its PTT ID (if you have PTT ID enabled). This wouldn't take a repeater into consideration at all, you could be on a simplex channel or not in range of any other radio equipment at all. And the release tone is sent over the frequency by the radio so that other users know you have finished talking (and not that you've just lost connection to the repeater). Neither of these, unfortunately, will tell the end user whether or not he's reached the repeater himself.

The correct software for the TK3180 is the KPG-89D, this is what I use for mine. According to Kenwood Programming Information, the KPG-92D is for the European version of the TK3180.

What you want to do is available for LTR trunked systems only. If you are trying to access a conventional repeater no such beep exists.
