The above are some of the talkgroups used in Uruguay. Of course, all BrandMeister talkgroups can be activated on every repeater. In Uruguay, international talkgroups, national and regional talkgroups of countries other than Uruguay should be used on timeslot 1. Talkgroup 748 is permanently active on all CX repeaters.
It is meant as a calling channel, for establishing the initial contact and facilitate QSY to a regional or user activated talkgroup (CXUAs). Please remember that QSOs on TG 748 block timeslot 1 on all CX repeaters.
Talk Groups on Time Slot 2
User-activated (tactical) Uruguay talkgroups on timeslot 1
User-activated talkgroups, also known as "tactical", "dynamic" or "on demand" 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 Uruguay users "meet" on national or regional talkgroups (e.g., TG 748 or TG 7481) and will then agree to switch to one of the user-activated talkgroups (TGs 74830, 74840, 74850, 74860). 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 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 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.
