FW: FTS-8




The FT-736R has built-in CTCSS encoding as standard equipment.  It's
accessed by the numeric keypad on the front panel.  I'm just about
certain it won't decode CTCSS tones.  The FTS-8 adds subaudible (PL)
tone encoding and decoding.  You can find FTS-8's on eBay, mostly ones
pulled from working radios in other auctions.  They are getting harder
to find though, and can go for as high as $75.  You'd almost be better
off finding a FT-736 with the FTS-8 installed, pulling the FTS-8 then
reselling the 736!

Hi Scott,

Not sure about that.  My 736R manual seems to indicate
that the FTS-8 is needed for both encode and decode.
It never mentions the ability to encode CTCSS without
the FTS-8.  Is yours different?  Maybe a North America
vs Europe model difference?
