    Baofeng Reverse Burst On Baofeng DM-1701

    I just programmed my DM-1701 with an analog channel with CTCSS 67.0. There is a squelch tail at the end of the transmission, I checked the box that says 'Reverse Burst' in the CPS software. And set the QT reverse to Silent, there is no change to the squelch tail.
