Thanks for all the comments.

I'm thinking maybe the way to go is to set it up as a DMR networked repeater and forget the analog. Less headaches.

How does one adjust the squelch setting on a Maratrac radio? I am aware of how to do it on an A9 control head but the control head on this Maratrac does not have a squelch button.

Is it strickly an RSS adjustment or can it be done at the control head?
