Re: [BCD396XT] squelch setting
- It opens at low numbers (usually 1 for me) and higher is tighter (which
means it takes a stronger signal to overcome it).
As Paul suggested, I've found that a setting of '2' works fine for me.
In general, you want to lower it on a CSQ channel until it opens (makes
noise), then raise it until it just stops. Note this will not work on a
CTCSS/CTCSS/NAC protected channel, or on a trunk system. You have to set
it on a channel that is not using any means of guarded access. If you
just hit HOLD-(FREQ)-HOLD, that will work fine.
