Question VX-264 2-Tone Programming

I am trying to set up 2 tone decode and encode on some newly bought VX-264 for the fire dept I am on. We were using VX-354 radios and I the programming from one of those radios that I pulled from the unit. The software for the VX-264 seems to have a different method for setting up the 2 tone system and I can not get it figured out.

I have never liked the way the old radios handled the 2 tone paging. When you set the 354 to the page channel it simply beeps and displays called on the screen. I would like for the 264 to actually open the squelch and thus let the audio from dispatch be heard.

I have searched the forum and have found this topic a couple places but I can not find any information on the actual set up process, just where people offer to look at the program files and fix the issue which is great. Just makes it hard to find the information.

Any help would be great, Thanks

In the CE150 software for the VX-264 under the Signaling tab at the top of the page you will go the 2-tone settings tab. In this tab you would enter the specific tones that you will be using for your FD. You will enter in the tone on the right side of the screen. After entering the tones you will need to navigate to the Signaling tab at the top again, select 2-tone settings, then the 2-tone system tab. I will just explain the 2-tone decode (pager) section, if you need help with the encoding please let me know. You will be setting the lower right box within this window (2 tone Decode). You will enter your 1st and 2nd tone here. If you are using a single group tone (long tone) just enter the 1st tone only. In the third input box (AF MUTE) you would set this for open to allow the radio to past the dispatch audio after receiving a page. The alert section is to set how you want the alert tones to function ( how long , how many times , and what it sounds like). The last thing that needs to be set is which channel within the radio is this going to be used for. You will set this within the channel parameters under the signaling type tab. You would set this for 2t and which ever decode number within your decode table that you entered in your FD tones. If you are setting a pager only channel just enter the receive section within the channel information. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for the information, I believe I got things set up now. I will find out later on today when my dispatch does the daily test.
