With DMR there are two timeslots. Two QSOs can happen simultaneously.
You are able to bring up any talk group programmed into your radio. Keying up a non-static talk group will establish a link to that talk group, and will expire after approximately 10 minutes of inactivity.
Talk group 3100 was removed from static because of the high amount of traffic. Of course you can still use this talk group by manually programming it in your radio. The talk group will be active and deactivate itself after 10 minutes of idle time.
