    Just getting into DMR. Repeater owners select what what talkgroups to allow. Why wouldn't they just allow all talk groups? I can see not including definitively non-useful talkgroups to the area the repeaters in but generally useful groups, I see no reason to not include. The only other reason I can see to pick and choose what to include is bandwidth concerns.

    A casual configured scenario, two talkgroups on different time slots, both are distant geography locations and possibly not in English. Your local repeater would be tied up for local or less remote English communications. Static talkgroups lock you into my scenario. Dynamic talkgroups with time outs after communications ends is an alternative.

    P.S. what to include will vary widely by trustee. Very subjective choice...

    Cell companies over subscribe and quality sucks for everyone.

    DMR audio sucks for the most part, On a good day. (Compared to Analog Full Bandwidth)
