Leaving the Txyz off altoghther leaves uncertanty.
I kinda favor the "Tnot" or a little better "Tnil" (or perhaps "Tnul") as
they are the most explicit.
Now, T000 seems obvious and it has a format very close to the T107 format,
However, I think it is just a little indirect [ 000 isn't a frequency] or one
half-step removed from "No Tone required".. While, 000 may very strongly
imply "No Tone required" it still seems liek an implication. T--- is similar.
I'd like Tnone as gramatically "nice", but that violates the already alloted
space. Also considered Tnon, but that is also strange and somewhat obscure in
I also pondered "No-T", or "no T" while gramatically good, it is too unlike
the standard Txxx format, but that may be a good thing just to call attention
to the fact that this is a no PL repeater. This then suggested T-no, which is
