TALKGROUP  USAGE  POLICIES

  1. Only the talkgroups listed above may be used, and only on the timeslots indicated.  Use of a given talkgroup on the wrong timeslot will result in either the traffic not being repeated through the network to other systems and/or violates usage policies.
  2. Use calling channels to establish contact, and then move to an approriate local, regional, or TAC talkgroup.  Do not occupy calling channels for extended QSO's!
  3. Be mindful of which talkgroup you are using -- always choose the talkgroup that ties up the fewest repeaters required to communicate.  For example, do not use a nationwide talkgroup for local communications.  Talkgroup 9 on timeslot 2 does not repeat beyond the local repeater; if two (or more) users are on the same repeater, they should use TG9.
  4. Always state which talkgroup you are on when making a directed or "listening" call.  For example, "W3XYZ listening on local 2" or "N3ABC, this is W3XYZ on PA Statewide".  Often other users will be scanning multiple repeaters/talkgroups, or they may have multiple talkgroups in their group list, and they may not know which talkgroup you are on unless you explicitly announce it.  When listening on TG9 (local repeat only), also announce which repeater you are on, such as "K3ZZZ listening, Wilkes-Barre local 9").
