[WriteLog] Off Topic Question - Repeater Operation in Germany

I will be visiting Berlin next week, and would like to use my Kenwood
TH-F6A on German repeaters to keep up with friends who are attending
the same international conference. I've heard that a 1750 Hz tone is
required to active repeaters in Europe, and I don't see how to make the
TH-F6A generate that tone (there is a European twin of the radio that
does). Is there a way around this?  

I've heard that sub-audible tones (PL) are starting to be used in some
parts of Europe. Can I transmit PL as an alternative to 1750 Hz, or do
I need both?
