  2. What is the term used to describe the use of a sub-audible tone transmitted with normal voice audio to open the squelch of a receiver?
    A. Carrier squelch
    B. Tone burst
    C. DTMF

    A. Tone squelch
    B. Carrier squelch
    C. CTCSS
    D. Modulated carrier
  4. Which of the following common problems might cause you to be able to hear but not access a repeater even when transmitting with the proper offset?
    A. The repeater receiver requires audio tone burst for access
    B. The repeater receiver requires a CTCSS tone for access
    C. The repeater receiver may require a DCS tone sequence for access
