Re: "Pre-empt" all talkgroups?

No problem, I'm sure I'm the one who sounds like an ass ;)

I'm just trying to wrap my head around how this will work. Okay, so here's my config for time slot 1:

'SIXTY': [
{'SYSTEM': 'REPEATER', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 60, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 15, 'TO_TYPE': 'ON', 'ON': [60,], 'OFF': []},
{'SYSTEM': 'K4USD', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 1, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []},
{'SYSTEM': 'REPEATER', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 1, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'ON', 'ON': [1,], 'OFF': [60]},
{'SYSTEM': 'K4USD', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 3, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'NONE', 'ON': [], 'OFF': []},
{'SYSTEM': 'REPEATER', 'TS': 1, 'TGID': 3, 'ACTIVE': True, 'TIMEOUT': 2, 'TO_TYPE': 'ON', 'ON': [3,], 'OFF': [60]},

So in this case, a user keying up on talk group 60 will cause WW and NA to shut off immediately. Now, I have the timeout set to 15 for talk group 60. Does this mean that talk group 60 will be exclusive for the next 15 minutes after the last user keys up on it, regardless of whether someone keys up on WW or NA during that time? This is what I'm trying to accomplish. I do not want WW or NA to be full-time talk groups, they need to remain PTT-only.

Right.. The TGID you want to have exclusive rights is a trigger to turn all others off. Isn’t that what you meant by "configure a talk group in a way that when a user keys up on it, that talk group has the time slot for a certain amount of time, and for that amount of time, no other talk group can be used on that slot, regardless of what other talk groups a user PTTs on”?
I don’t quote you to sound like an ass, but to try and figure out what about this doesn’t solve that requirement – key up on a TGID, then that TGID has exclusive access for a period of time? That says to me, use that TGID to trigger turning all others off for the specified time? No?

Ah, but in that kind of configuration, those talk groups would be on all the time, *except* when any of the "off" talk groups are activated, right?

What about talk groups that use a TO_TYPE of "ON"?
