* Local talkgroups are generally not linked between repeaters and are for local, off network traffic.  The exceptions to this are the Richmond/Petersburg locals  along with the Charlottesville / Harrisonburg / Linden 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.
