    I own a wouxon kg-uv920p Mobile radio and I am trying to program a repeater into it with out software assistance. If anyone has programmed a repeater into this radio before using the radio and not software and could walk me threw it I’d be grateful for the help.

    Do you have the freq, offset, and PL tone for the repeater you're trying to use?

    Yes, but the manual is not clear about how to add the tone up/down into the radio.

    It looks like

    Menu 28 is transmitting CTCSS

    Menu 4 is Offset

    downlink 145.45000 (is this what i should be transmitting on?)
    uplink 144.8500 (is this what i should be receiving on?)
    offset -0.6 MHz (this I know how to do)
    unlink tone 100.0 (is this what the CTCSS is??)
    downlink tone 100.0

    Downlink = repeater output (your receive frequency)
    Uplink = repeater input (your transmit frequency)
    Tone is the same as CTCSS. You only need this on your transmit frequency.

    You don't need a CTCSS tone on your receive frequency. Using tone squelch on recieve prevents you from hearing any signal that doesn't have the correct tone. This will cause problems if you don't know exactly what you are doing.
