I have a repeater frequency saved. When I set a tone, it works, but when I turn the device off and on again, the tone setting part is "gone". Manual CTCSS operation #7 "When you have made your selection, press the F/L key to save..."

Turns out I have to "re save" that frequency (even though it says it's on "remembered frequency 4") as frequency 4 again after setting tone, then it'll preserve the tone setting.
