Default Talk Around / Simplex on Capacity Plus Single Repeater System

I am getting mixed messages regarding the ability to use talkaround with our repeater / system setup. Motorola says no, users say yes....

is it possible to enable talkaround using a capacity plus trunked system? we have a simple set up with a single repeater

if possible - use a button or channel selector?

problem I am trying to solve- when the repeater goes offline for what ever reason, we are dead in the water. i would like our security department to still function until repeater comes back up.

any thoughts or specifics?

yes you can just put in your Simplex in your zone next to the channels you have.

Usually in this case you would use your repeater TX as the TA frequency.

Very simple to setup in CPS. But your repeater should not be going down.

Good luck.
