The Yaesu WIRES (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) proprietary Internet Connection feature operates by transmitting a short (~ 0.1 second) DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency) tone burst each time the Push-to-Talk button is pressed.

This feature causes problems if turned on accidently. It sends a DTMF Tone when the PTT is keyed. Thus blanking out the 1st second or two of your transmission and can confuse the controller of your local Repeater.

In most of the Yaesu manuals this is listed as Internet Connection Feature.
