  • TG 23558 – Scotland Highland & Islands

Call TG 4000 to disconnect any dynamically selected talk groups that have been connected.

If you want to key up a talk group and just listen then that’s fine on this time slot though do announce yourself so you stay within your license conditions. (also remember different repeaters have different policies so do check if you go elsewhere).

Other Stuff

Parrot (Echo Test) calls can be made on either time slot by placing a private call to 9990.

Private calls are okay, but if you can limit private calls to getting someone’s attention then QSY (move) to e.g. the EMF Talk Group 27273 it would be much appreciated
