What are PL Tones / PL Codes?
A PL Tone (Private Line Tone or Private Line Code) is a sub-frequency that filters out other radio user's transmissions on the same frequency in the area.
It can be though of as lanes on a highway - people share the same highway (frequency) and the lanes (PL tones) prevent them from running into each other (hearing each other).
