Thanks for the suggestions! I will try switching the tone, and as for the COR sense, it takes COR & tone. I do hear the courtesy tone when the CAT tone sense is on. Additonal replies welcome! Don't you just LOVE repeaters!
I worked on one of our other repeaters yesterday that was throwing a spur. After looking at it on the service monitor, it loked like an upside down comb! It is a low power exciter feeding an amp. What we found was we could "sweep" the exciter power control and the spurs would go and come. It had two "sweet" spots the amp liked so we choose the lower one. Now it is "happy" (and so are the ones who were hearing the spurs!). Everything but the actual TX frequency is down -90db. Maybe that will help someone!
