I understand the simplicity of the circuit bit, but then the PL tone
doesn't have any "smarts" w.r.t. whether the signal is a base
station and/or moving, etc.  With the TT4 or T2 solution (with a
piezo) you could selectively ignore some of those local stations
that don't play by the rules, plus use it with radios that don't
have PL-out or PL-decode.
