Icom IC-F3GS Two Tone Encode

Post by aaknitt »

I'm trying to figure out how the two tone encode works on the IC-F3GS. The help files in the programming software are close to useless.

I see where to set the tone that you want to send, but how is it actually sent? Is it sent on PTT, or do you set up one of the keypad buttons for it? If so, what keypad function is used?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

If it's anything like Kenwood software,then you have to setup a button specially for 2-tone encode.

That's kind of what I was thinking, but I don't see that as one of the keypad options. Anyone else have any details on how to make this work?

Thanks,

Andy

Ok thanks! It appears that I can only set up one tone pair for encode. Am I interpreting that correctly? If so, then no matter what channel I'm on, when I hit the "call" button, the tone is sent. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Andy

Yes with the F3 only one TX code. With the F33/F50/F70 you can select up to 10 codes to send out.
