    Ummmmmm . . . to the best of my recollection, the HW2036 did not have a CTCSS encoder.

    If I'm wrong, I'll stand corrected.

    I think in this case PL refers to "phase lock", not tones. I remember setting that on my 2036 many moons ago, seems like it was a simple adjustment that kept the PLL locked. Sorry I can't remember more, but it was described quite well in the manual.

    Thanks to all.
    After a few hours of playing with it I got the PL tones up and running. And Thanks go out to Walt, W5ALT for all his input. One thing about it Heathkits Mic's are just plain ugly.
