  Bearcat BC-125AT CTCSS

The Bearcat BC-125AT scanner can monitor systems using a Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) and Digital Coded Squelch (DCS) system, which allows the squelch to open only when the tone you have programmed with a specific frequency is received along with a transmission. CTCSS and DCS are sub-audible tone signaling systems sometimes referred to as PL or DPL (Motorola’s trademarked terms for Private Line and Digital Private Line respectively). CTCSS and DCS are used only for FM signals and are usually associated with both amateur and commercial two-way frequencies. These systems make use of a special sub-audible tone that accompanies a transmitted signal.
