* Local talkgroups are generally not linked between repeaters and are for local, off network traffic between stations in the immediate area of the repeater.  The exceptions to this are the Richmond/Petersburg locals  along with the Charlottesville / Harrisonburg / Linden / Fredericksburg Locals being interconnected.  This may change periodically without notice.

** DMRVA Site to Site (VA TAC) Talkgroups are on-demand and should be used for heavy site-to-site linking or extended inter-repeater QSOs, so that VA Statewide is not tied up for an extended period. For example, if you would like to have an extended QSO with a friend who is served by a different repeater, please make contact with him on Statewide and then move to one of the VA TAC talkgroups.
