Make sure the Model number matches up and the band split is correct this will cause this problem. You may have to select use RSS tuning values I believe it is F2 when writting the radio. Not F6.

Re: Permit to Speak Tone

With MTS2K the only pre PTT tone you can get is the MDC1200 Sidetone. Which is a long beep prior to transmitting a data burst. Can be set to various times of delay. It can get annoying after a while.

You can either turn the DOS, time to 0 or turn RX signalling to none if you can. the best way is to turn DOS HOLD OFF to 0.0

Have the radio set up for MDC1200 Pre PTT ID, with sidetone enabled and you will get a short beep when you first press the PTT button. Your radio ID will also be sent over the air in data burst form. (the squak noise) Which can be decoded by a varity of decoders.

Try programming Bit Sync Packets or Preamble, (the ringing sound) this will give a different sounding ID data burst. On HT1000 or HT1250 steting these to 5 in the MDC1200 Options with a pretime of 500ms is usually a pretty good setting.
