Dynamic Talkgroup and Static Talkgroup on Brandmeister

Dynamic Talkgroup and Static Talkgroup on Brandmeister

The talk group on Brandmeister is divided into the following three types:

1, Dynamics Talkgroup: Dynamic group must press PTT into, dynamic group is also known as temporary group, you can enter multiple dynamic groups at the same time, and the last dynamic group which you continuous listening can keep 15 minutes until exit automatically.

2, Static Talkgroup: Do not need press PTT, open your hot spot can listen to the group, you can set one to more static groups.

3, Automatic static group: When there is no static group, the last dynamic group used is set to automatic static group until the PTT is switched to another group, and when the group is switched, the previous automatic static group becomes a dynamic group and retains 15 minutes, and the last group becomes an automatic static group , and its effect is equivalent to a static group (but only one).
