    In the repeater book most tones frequencys are listed or if none then left blank, but some have CSQ listed for the tone, I can't bring them up so I know they require some type of tone, so what is CSQ?

    I think they want you to use the Chicago Saxophone Quartet.:)

    What are Tones?
    PL / CTCSS / DCS / CSQ

    Carrier Squelch (CSQ) is used when PL / CTCSS coded receive is NOT USED.
    Even if any PL / CTCSS tone is present in the received signal, the (repeater) receiver just ignores it and the (repeater’s) squelch opens strictly when any received signal is strong enough to overcome the squelch level setting.

    IF you can not activate the repeater, Contact the Owner, Club, or Administrator.

    Thanks, usually the tone is left blank in the repeater book listings, Im guessing maybe this is a software update with their site, probably all no tone repeaters maybe be listed this way in the future.

    CSQ means Carrier SQuelch, that repeater will come up with just a carrier with no subaudible or digi tone or with ANY tone running.

    That sounds about right. ANY or NO CTCSS (aka PL) will trip the repeater, as long as it is strong enough to activate the repeater.
