I believe that you could purchase any of the small CTCSS boards sold for
this purpose.  There are a number of them made.  The smallest is quite small
and is programmed by soldering pads on a PCB.  There's instructions for how
to put it in your rig.  Pretty simple to do.  Most, if not all, the major US
ham dealers sell these.  The cheapest cost about $25.

We here in the US have to use CTCSS on nearly every repeater in major cities
and yes, it has to be there all the time.  I think you folks on the other
side of the pond, just need the burst tone.
