Selecting CTCSS/DCS Tones

First - Push Func is done by pushing in the Scroll Control and
Function F knob (the big silver knob on the right).

Push "Menu" button >
Push Func to select "Program System" >
Rotate knob and select the System > Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select "Edit Group" Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select the channel group > Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select "Edit Channel" > Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select the channel > Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select "Audio Type" > Push Func >
Rotate knob to Select "Analog Only" > Push Func >

At this point you can scroll to CTCSS or DCS and select the subaudible frequency
in the CTCSS range or the DCS code.

This setting controls how a sub audible CTCSS or DCS is used for the channel.
Select your setting, then press F.

Off — any signal opens squelch. The default setting is Off.

Search — the scanner searches for and displays any CTCSS or DCS tone that
accompanies the transmission.

CTCSS — the scanner only opens squelch if the CTCSS tone you select is also
present with the signal. The scanner then prompts you to enter or scroll to the
desired tone.

DCS — the scanner only opens squelch if the DCS tone you select is also present
with the signal. The scanner then prompts you to enter or scroll to the desired
tone.

Set Lockout — the scanner does not stop on the channel if the tone you select
is present. The scanner prompts you to select a CTCSS or DCS tone.
