If the uplink/​downlink tone field label is missing, then the repeater'​s tone is being hidden. Otherwise, the field is simply empty. RepeaterBook encourages listings to include the "​CSQ"​ tag, for carrier squelch, on all repeater listings where no uplink tone is required to operate the repeater in order to reduce confusion.
