Timeslot 1: Talkgroups Only.
A static talkgroup: will always key on the repeater so you hear all conversations on that TG number over the BM system. Disadvantage is it can become busy and difficult to use the repeater, ie TG91 worldwide.
Activate a TG: you are able to select any TG number available which will stay active for the duration of the QSO and then close a few minutes after becoming inactive.
Timeslot 2: Reflectors Only.
Reflectors similar to the Dstar network. The easiest way to use the reflector is to program your radio a timeslot 2 channel with Talkgroup 9 (local).
This is the only talkgroup you will need for a QSO on any reflector.
To link and unlink a reflector, program your radio with the reflector number as a personal call (NOT A TALKGROUP) in your contacts folder.
To link to a reflector, select the reflector number from the contacts list and transmit for about 2 seconds. The repeater should respond with a voice announcement, “Linked to xxxx”. Then using just talkgroup 9 to start a QSO on timeslot 2.
To unlink select 4000 personal call (NOT A TALKGROUP CALL) from the contacts list, transmit for about 2 seconds, and you should hear a voice announcement “Not Linked”.
