CTCSS Tones
 
Continuous Tone-Coded Squelch System or CTCSS is used to reduce the annoyance of listening to other users on a shared two-way radio communications channel like UHF CB and is quite often referred to as tone squelch .
 
Where more than one user group is on the same channel, CTCSS filters out other users if they are using a different CTCSS tone or no CTCSS. Instead of turning on the receive audio for any signal, the two-way radio receiver's audio turns on only in the presence of a signal AND the correct tone.
 
A carrier squelch or noise squelch receiver is unlocked and will let any signal in. A receiver with CTCSS locks out all signals except ones encoded with the correct tone.
 
Following is a list of the common CTCSS Code Numbers and Frequency
