The only place I have seen this convention used is Japanese "Ham
English" in the setup menus of Japanese ham gear.
Many of the scrollable configuration menus displayable on the front
panel of these radios have severely limited length of character strings,
preventing them from displaying "CTCSS- RX" or "PL Rec" or "PL Xmit".
Instead, they use "PL" or "Tone" to denote transmit tone freq or
function on/off, and "CTCSS" or "TS" (Tone Squelch) to denote receive
tone or function on/off.
