I just got my UV-5re. I am trying to program a DPL of 165. I have entered the code 165.0 under the CTCSS/DCSENC. But no luck I cant get the repeter to trip, all the freq are correct. It works on my motorola astro the code plug reads transmit dpl code 165 DPL not PL. So I need some help. Does this radio even support DPL.



Thanks to any who can help.

That's a CTCSS tone is why it won't work. You need D165NJim KC9HI

There is no such thing as DPL tones



PL is "Private Line" which is the Motorola trademark name for Continuous

Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS), also commonly known as Tone Squelch or just

"Tone"



The digital equivalent is Digitally Coded Squelch, or DCS -- there are no

tones involved in DCS, it is a digital code



The BF UV-5R supports both, but you have to have at least some idea what you

are trying to set up.

Quoted from RadioRererence.com

"Motorola calls this Digital Private Line.or.DPL."

Sorry.�� Apparently I am one of the thousands of ham and commercialradio users who had never heard of this useless trademark.�� Their originaltrademark on .PL. long ago passed into common usage as a generic term for CTCSSalthough almost no one remembers that .PL. is short for .Private Line. and mostusers would never recognize the term .Private Line. (which Motorola does notbother to advertise any longer).�� It would seem that the more recenttrademark name .DPL. has remained a valid trademark rather than falling intocommon usage and exists only in Motorola radio manuals and Motorola programmingsoftware.��The main point of the message remains that you cannot enter a DCS code inplace of .CTCSS. or .Tone. in any of the programming software for the UV-5R (orany other radio I have ever heard of).��From: Jim UnroeSent: Thursday, January 24, 2013 05:08 AMTo: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.comSubject: Re: [baofeng_uv5r] DPL tones

Question...

Won't the CTCSS/DCS field in the Faactory software and the

DTCS field in CHIRP accomplish this?

The fields for CTCSS and DCS are different fields -- you have to put the

right number in the right field

Don't feel bad. We all have knowledge gaps. Now, you can pass this along the nest time it comes up.

Does anyone know how to program DPL Tones into a Baofang using Chirp?���� I have no problem with PL tones but a particular frequency at 460.05 requires a Tone of 023 DPL.���� How do I input that into Chirp?

It is pretty simple. From the CHIRP guide found here...

www.miklor.com/COM/UV_CHIRP.php



The first thing is to check the View menu and make sure that "Hide

Unused Fields" is enabled. This makes the CHIRP UI less confusing.



For a TX and RX code do the following...



Frequency: 460.05000

Tone Mode: DTCS

DTCS Code: 023

DTCS Pol: NN



For a TX only code do the following...



Frequency: 460.05000

Tone Mode: Cross

Cross Mode: DTCS->

DTCS Code: 023

DTCS Pol: NN

Thanks Jim.���� This is a local��emergency frequency.���� I do not want to transmit;I only want to receive.�� Can��you please provide the settings for��RX only?��

This is also shown in the guide that is linked to on the Miklor.com

web page that I referred to earlier.



On must Baofeng radios, the way to prevent transmitting on a memory

channel is to set the Duplex field to "off".
