My UHF unit has CTSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System). Can anyone tell me what this means in English and what I might use it for? The instruction manual gives me a list of numbers/frequencies but doesn't explain any more about it.

Basically i think it means you have several versions of each channel... So if there is someone using channel 14 for instance and you and your mate have ctcss,,, you can adjust off channel but still using ch14 and not even be bothered by those original users...... But i think it bothers them because they will hear you a clear as day even though you cannot hear them.....

It turns you uhf into about a 280channel cb.....

Yep. It just means that you can use your UHF without being bothered by other people. More of a city use thing I would think. Can get a little congested there. Plus there are the annoying people who break in just for fun.

Yeah, CTSS means for every 1 of your 40 channels you have 38 sub channels to choose from.

But be warned, it blocks out other people's audio so you can't here them, however you can still be heard by everyone else!

They can also still "squash" you by dropping carriers or just plain talking over the top of you, you will not here their voice, but you may not here who your talking to either. (if that makes any sense).
