There is no "standard" tone... they're all different. The ARRL Repeater
Directory will probably contain *some* of them, but not all. I'm really
not sure how to determine what the tone is. If you hear a repeater, and
can copy down its call sign (actually, the call sign of the trustee) you
could contact that individual or club and ask them.
I have the same problem, but slightly different. There's a 10m machine
one 29.56/.66 here in Dallas / Fort Worth, and they keep CHANGING the
damned tone! I have no idea what it really is, but the tone listed in
the Repeater Directory is not correct.
Geez... I miss the good ol' days in the early 1980s when propagation on
10m was incredible and the band was open day and night. I spent hours
and hours working stations all over the place using converted CB radios
and a few commercial rigs (Azden PCS-2800, Comtronix FM-80, etc). I'm
looking forward to those days returning!
Good luck on 10m FM... Dean KC5NG
