Use of talkgroups and timeslots in Switzerland

As a general rule, international talkgroups, the national talkgroup 228 and user activated talkgroups (sometimes also referred to as "tactical talkgroups") are used on timelsot 1, while regional and local traffic is kept on timeslot 2.

Talkgroups on timeslot 1

Here's a selection of talkgroups frequently used in Switzerland. Of course, all BrandMeister talkgroups can be activated on every repeater. In Switzerland, international talkgroups, national and regional talkgroups of countries other than Switzerland should be used on timeslot 1. Talkgroup 228 is permanently active on all Swiss repeaters. It is meant as a calling channel, for establishing the initial contact and facilitate QSY to a regional or user activated talkgroup. Please remember that QSOs on TG 228 are blocking timeslot 1 on all Swiss repeaters.

User-activated (tactical) Swiss talkgroups on timeslot 1

User-activated talkgroups, also known as "tactical" or "dynamic" talkgroups, are activated by pressing PTT once. The talkgroup will stay active (on the repeater it has been activated) for 10 minutes after the last activation. In Switzerland, users often "meet" on national or regional talkgroups (e.g., TG 2280 or TG 2283) and will then agree to switch to one of the user-activated talkgroups TG 22801, 22802, 22803 and 22804). Since user-activated talkgroups are used on timeslot 1, this operating procedure frees up resources on timeslot 2 for regional and local QSOs of other OMs.
