    Default Radio tone alert

    I own a kenwood th-f6 and even though it's a ham radio i use it to receive calls for my FD and i was wondering if anyone knew if it is possible to program it to go off for my FD's tones. It has "ctcss" tone alert and "dcs" tone alert and tone scan, but i don't know if i can use that for the fire dept, Any help would be appreciated.

    Original Post Deleted. Try asking it on a Ham board.

    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    No, it can not and will not decode or alert with paging tones. Completely different animal than CTCSS or DCS.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
