    Default EFJ 5100 DCS Problem

    I have an interesting problem...I just got a new EFJ 5100, it seems as though DCS doesn't work, whenever the radio receives a signal on a channel configured with DCS the squelch never opens. CTCSS works fine. If I use the "Squelch" menu option and set the mode to "Normal" (which I assume is used to defeat any PL/DPL tone) squelch opens.

    Anyone ever run into an issue like this?

    Nevermind; Apparently setting the transmit "Modulation Level" is required for even Rx only frequencies. I changed it from Wide to Narrow and now the DCS seems to be decoding as intended.
