Talk Groups on Time Slot 1
- 748 - Uruguay national (permanent on most repeaters)
Some other examples:
- 91 --- Worlwide
- 92 --- Europe
- 93 --- North America
- 97 --- Latin America
- 907 -- JOTA
- 913 -- English
- 914 -- Spanish
- 915 -- Portuguese
The above are some of the talk groups used in Uruguay. Of course, all BrandMeister talk groups can be activated on any repeater. In Uruguay, international talk groups, national and regional talk groups of countries other than Uruguay should be used on time slot 1. Talk group 748 is permanently active on most CX repeaters. It is meant as a calling channel, for establishing the initial contact and facilitate QSY to a regional or user activated talk group (CXUAs). Please remember that QSOs on TG 748 block time slot 1 on almost all CX repeaters.
Talk Groups on Time Slot 2
User-activated (Tactical) Uruguay Talk Groups on Time Slot 2
User-activated talk groups, also known as "tactical", "dynamic" or "on demand" talk groups, are activated by pressing PTT once. The talk group will stay active (on the repeater it has been activated) for 10 minutes after the last activation. In Uruguay users "meet" on national or regional talk groups (e.g., TG 748,TS1) and will then agree to switch to one of the user-activated talk groups (TGs 74830, 74840, 74850, 74860). Since user-activated talk groups are used on time slot 2, this operating procedure frees up resources on time slot 1 for other users.

Group Calls and Private Calls
The BrandMeister network allows Group Calls and Private Calls.
A Group Call is a call to a talk group (TG) number, in which other stations configured to listen to this TG will receive and broadcast this call. These other stations can respond in the same group call using the same TG. A list of commonly used talk groups is available.
When using a Hytera terminal, you can manually dial in a group ID by selecting Contact in the menu, select Manual Dial and press # to switch between Group or Private ID.
A Private Call is a call to a specific DMR ID. This allows a single station to connect over the BrandMeister network to another station. The communication is "private" in the sense that other DMR stations with a different DMR ID programmed won't hear the QSO, but the communication is available for anyone listening in to the DMR stream or with a DMR station with an identical DMR ID programmed.
When using a Hytera terminal, you can manually dial in a private ID by selecting Contact in the menu, select Manual Dial and press # to switch between Group or Private ID.
