You're not slow. Trunk systems can be difficult to understand. There are no frequencies within a talk group. Trunk systerms operate via a group of frequencies and users communicate on those frequencies via talk groups. Here's a brief explanation of how trunk systems work. It may help you understand a little better. In it, it refers to Group IDs. Group IDs ARE talk groups.

If you're still having difficulty understanding, don't hesitate to post back and I or someone else will try to help you further.
