I have a question for those who have been using their 396xt's.

I have noticed that some of my frequencies will display a CTCS code and others don't. Does this mean that those frequencies don't use CTCS codes ??
if you need to ask, then you don't need to know

There is actually an option per channel to enable or disable ctcss scanning. It might be a case of you have a channel enabled to scan ctcss but there is no tone transmitted.

It's handy when you scan CB for example you can see what tone they are using.
