If you go to a ham radio flea market, you might find a little electronic device that will generate DTMF tones. I’ve seen them around quite a few times. I’m sure they can be found on eBay, too. They look a lot like an old phone pager, and usually run on a 9-volt battery. At flea markets, expect to pay anywhere from a buck to five bucks for one.

Sorry, no smart phone. So, the DTMF tones are strictly audio and can be generated externally? That would help a bit. I could generate them on my laptop or similar? Thank you very much. I've never used DTMF because I didn't have a proper mic and my HT's couldn't hit the repeaters that used the tones.....
