    LOL. Langam bitte means, "(speak) more slowly please."

    "Bitte" means both "please" and "thank you." Efficient, those Germans! Why waste a lot of time, right? :rolleyes:

    ::Nie hat in Deutschland gelebt aber hat vielmals besucht. Ich habe Familie in Augsburg, ungefähr 20 km außerhalb München. Haben Sie eine gute Nacht!

    BTW, I've had lunch 6-7 times at the Hofbrau Haus in Munchen where Hitler was almost assassinated (they missed, bad timing)...lifted way too many steins there, "Prosit!" It's where my XYL got a taste for "Ratler." Drei und siebsich.

    OK... a repeater question thread has spun into a foreign language. I think this forum is going to be OK.:D

    Well, yes, Glen, but he did say he was able to key the repeater and get the beep. This cannot be done without the proper CTCSS tones. Thus asking if he had the right tones set is irrelevent. I could understand a little impatience in his reply.

    ::Which is why it's possible to get into a never ending loop of "Bitte?" "Danke." "Bitte?" "Danke." "Bitte?":rolleyes:

    That loop could come in pretty handy, mit Steins von Bier, zum Beispiel.

    PLL Vs PL

    TCG,

    _IF_, as I suspect, you were making fun of AD5MBs typo (PLL rather than PL) and it is your practice to belittle people trying to help you then it may explain why you are having difficulty obtaining replies to your calls.

    You can do unlauts one of two ways:
    1. Bring up the "Character map" on the Start Menu. It is probably under Accessories->System. The copy and paste.
    2. Hold down the Alt key and press the appropriate sequence of number on the numerical keypad. The character map shows the numbers to be pressed.

    Ä Ë Ö Ü ß
    ä ë ö ü

    The above German characters were as discussed. The top line was don with method 1 and the bottom line with method 2.

    Similarly you can get the special characters for other languages if you need them.
