Yep, Dave is absolutely correct. I tried using one on a club repeater here, and it was so bad I've blocked connection to all reflectors. As I recall pulsecheck came out something like 1250. yech!!!

You are correct. YOU never hear the slow tone decoder. Everyone else
I operate two nodes using the Alinco DR-135 two meter radios with no
problems. I haven't noticed any PL decode issues at all. They work
great and the interface is easy to wire up right out of the box. Its
just 5 wires between two DB9 connectors.
on the reflector does though. That is why they are frequently
blocked. The Alinco is very easy to hook up and operate as a simplex
node. But is total crap as a link radio to a repeater, unless you add
on an outboard decoder ...but then it is no longer easy <grin>.
