Baofeng radio's have two menu options for squelch tail elimination (STE). Item 35 is for general simplex STE, and item 36 is for repeater STE.
My question is how would the radio know if a transmission is coming from a repeater in order to apply the setting from #36 instead of the setting for #35?
Also menu 36 (RP-STE) has ten settings 1-10, is there an intuitive way to think about what this sensitivity means? At least whether value 1 or value 10 is the most aggressive squelch setting.
The simplex version (item 35, "STE") is just off or on, so I'm not sure how that maps to the 1-10 settings in the repeater version.
