As most of you will know, we have been making various mutterings for many months now regarding the need to reorganise the current “TG8” regional talk group structure. To a great extent, this has been a victim of its own success, but it has shortcomings – some of which we have attempted to paper over with the invention and implementation of the “direct dial” talk groups.

With the rapid (and continuing) expansion of the network it is time for a fresh look at what we might do going forwards; this paper is intended to be the cornerstone of an open discussion regarding how the regional talk groups would be best organised . This is NOT a “done deal”, nor a fait accompli. Please feel free to share thoughts and observations and to ask questions…….
