Thank you for the information that is awesome always good to talk with Old timers whether their hams or not.  
I will make it a point to look up your call and make a contact one day.

The internet says:

To completely disable the onboard WiFi from the firmware on the Pi3 / Pi4, add


in /boot/config.txt.

It looks like to stop the squelch tail from going through the node would require eliminating the squelch tail at the repeater itself.
Whatever audio/squelch tale is present from the repeater is going to go through the node.

Good luck with all.

I appreciate the input thank you for taking the time to send me that info. 
When I got the node I was able to get it working Wi-Fi. I have since hooked it up via cat six Cable and don’t remember how I got it on Wi-Fi. 

The repeater and node are working great together, open for everyone in Lone Pine to use just trying to eliminate the squelch tail from being sent through IRLP node. 

Thanks again

PiRLP node from Dave Cameron comes with wifi turned off.  You would have to turn it on to switch from ethenet to wifi.

As far as repeaters go, I have only indirect knowledge.  Usually one programs the repeater so that DTMF code will allow the repeater to access the node and allow connections to reflector channels or other nodes.

Hi all,
Happy Fathers Day.

  I am running PIRLP node # 7123 I have two questions,
1.  I now have the node connected to the internet via cat 6 cable  and would like to know the command to turn off the wireless and where to put the command?

2.  I would also like to know if I can make it so my BridgeCom BC-50V can work with a squelch tail without sending it thru the node?

Thank you in advance.
