Is it possible to set the backlight on the 436 to activate whenever the squelch is broken? Thank you...

It can be done either through the keypad of via Sentinel. In Sentinel, edit the applicable profile, go to Display Options tab and look for backlight. Choose a value of anything other than indefinite for how long the backlight timer remains on after an incoming transmission is detected.

Welcome to RadioReference.

On the radio go to Menu (press lower side button) (> = Enter, or Press Down on Volume Knob) Scroll to Display Options>Set Backlight>Set Mode>Squelch>Open Squelch>Press Avoid to return to scan. This will turn the light on whenever there is audio and turn it off when audio ceases.

I personally use either 5 or 10 seconds which conserves battery life.
