I had intended to use the tone access on V/S this week. Although the PL 
will not PTT the S transmitter, the quiet carrier makes the downlink 
easier to find, and there are not so many users to make that type of PL 
access problematic. However, the V/S entry in the automatic scheduler 
does not include PL, and since the scheduler is now what is making V/S 
possible, there is no PL.

Long story short, we intended to, but couldn't due to a change in 
procedure. I'll fix the Command Team webpage right now.
