Clarify please.  I'm having trouble achieving bit-sync with this description.

Does the _local_ repeater use 156.7 ?
You want to shut out the FAR repeater ?
That far repeater uses something else or none ?
What's the point of advertizing the far repeater as an object from the near Digi, with the near repeater's tone ?

Then, this says that the D710 will tune and set tone _Squelch_ as well as just Tx Tone ?


However, RE one of Bob's posts, does the D710 have Voice capability ??
