[aprssig] repeater objects and digipeater advertisements.

OK  That's what I thought.  I got confused by which repeater the  "that repeater" referenced.   Antecedent confusion.
So, the D710 does indeed recognize the "C" as tone squelch (as in "CT"), Cool.  I wonder if there are any other hidden nuggets...or does the D710 manual mention this feature?

Our local repeater uses 156.7 CTCSS.  The distant repeater, I dunno.  When I first programmed the local repeater object into the local digipeater so that it could be autotuned, I used the T designator which meant when you pressed TUNE on the d710, it would QSY and setup the PL tone 156.7.  Since the tone was only used for transmit, I could get into the local repeater, but I could also hear the other one when I had used autotune.
What I figured out is that the repeater object could program not only PL tone but CTCSS squelch too.  Now when I hit TUNE, I have CTCSS squelch on the local repeater and don't hear the distant one.

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 ??
