Quiet Talk is achieved through the use of a Continuous Tone-Coded Squelch System or CTCSS. This is a circuit that is used to reduce the annoyance of listening to other users on a shared two-way radio communications channel. It is also sometimes called tone squelch. Where more than one user group is on the same channel (called co-channel users), CTCSS filters out other users if they are using a different CTCSS tone or no CTCSS.Receivers equipped with a CTCSS circuit usually have a switch that selects normal mode or CTCSS mode. When enabled, the CTCSS radio circuit, instead of opening the receive audio for any signal, causes the two-way radio receiver's audio to open only in the presence of the normal RF signal AND the correct sub-audible audio tone (sub-audible meaning that the receiver circuitry can detect it, but is not apparent to the users in the audio output). This is akin to the use of a lock on a door. A carrier squelch or noise squelch receiver not configured with CTCSS has no lock on its door and will let any signal in. A receiver with CTCSS circuitry (and with it enabled) locks out all signals except ones encoded with the correct tone. CTCSS can be regarded as a form of in-band signaling.

Who invented the two way radio?

  Dr. Mahlom Loomis invented the first radio. He was a dentist in Washington D.C. In 1865 he sent 18 kites miles away from each other on the West Vriginia mountain. He rec

Advantages and disadvantages of two way radios?

Two way radios are simple ways of staying connected wirelessly. Though they cover only a limited area, the cost-effective quality of the radios keeps them far above the other

What can you do with two way radios?

You can use them to communicate with other people when you need to. Example: A cellphone is a two-way radio.

Can you track a two way radio?

Yes, it is possible to use direction finder devices (usually radio receivers with directional Antennas abbreviated to "DF receivers"), the most common and oldest method is tri

Do two-way radios work at sea?

Not so complicated as that. Your walkie-talkies will work anywhere. However, when you are in port, your use of the particular spectrum (radio bands) that you are using is gove

Where can two way radios be purchased?

Two way radios can be purchased in any hardware or audio store. You can also find them at stores such as Best Buy, Future Shop, Canadian Tire and Walmart.

Why do Two Way Radios have interference?

Two way radios have both a transmitter and a receiver so that they may send and receive signals beween units, in both directions. They operate on assigned frequencies within v

What are two way radios used for?

Two way radios are used to transmit and receive. What I mean by that is a two way radio allows two people to talk to each with similar devices on the same radio frequency. It'
