VA3XPR Talkgroups

World Map v2

The VA3XPR repeaters supports a number of talkgroups, or virtual radio channels, for users within its coverage area to use. Any user that is tuned into a talkgroup will hear the traffic from all of other users on that talkgroup, which are usually intended to cover a specific geographic region or for a specific language. In addition, talkgroups are either designated as permanent or on-demand.

Permanent: These talkgroups are always active and any traffic on them will be automatically be broadcasted to all users that are listening on these specific talkgroups.

On-Demand: These talkgroups are inactive until a user initiates them by keying the PTT (push to talk) button on their radio while on that talkgroup. Once the talkgroup is activated, it will remain active until they become inactive for 5 minutes. To reactive the talkgroup, a user simply needs to key their PTT on the talkgroup again.
