Re: IC-7000 2 Meter Rpt Problem Transmit but doesn't open the repeater ?

I can hear other stations on the repeater output frequency so I am pretty sure that I am not letting the machine.

1. Confirm w/the repeater's owner the actual repeater's receiver's decode CTCSS frequency. 100 Hz may be the preferred tone in some areas but I have found many New England rptrs use 162.2 or 71.9.
2. Make certain the mobile's CTCSS encode tone's level is meeting spec; e.g. older commercial equip. set a CTCSS tone level at 0.75 KHz deviation.

Another owner has commented about this. His finding was that the transmit audio needs to be opened up at the low end to allow the so-called "sub-audible" tones to pass. I seem to remember that the lowest possible tone is 67.0 Hz.
I use specific Icom 2m/70cm rigs instead of their HF rigs for mobile VHF/UHF use.

The repeater requires a tone. It seems that most do with the default tone being 100.0 Hz.
Does the repeater require a tone?

I have had my 7000 for 11 great years but never tried 2M repeater work. I have confirmed the radio transmits on the input frequency but will not key the repeater. Have triple check parameters ( doesn't mean it is still operator error).
using my Yaseu FT-530 I can use the repeater ( which I guess just provesI can use the 530.)
Could the tone generating capability not be working? Seems very unlikely.
Any help appreciated.
