Note from Karl - AK2O, Club technician.
Repeaters mostly operate on hilltops that are usually "busy" with other radio stations as well.  Because of this there is great possibility of one radio station getting into another, mainly our repeater.  To prevent this CTCSS (tone) access is necessary on the repeater input.  This is done only on repeaters with this type of interference.  If there is no interference there is no need to tone the repeater, hence being on carrier squelch. When in doubt use the tone.
