  • Also, later, after initial implementation of the updated-template across the Wiki, the "FCC" parameter (which in the existing template can only handle one callsign), and the "MoreCallsigns" parameter, will be merged into one parameter that handles multiple callsigns.
To the test-template , the new parameter "Callsigns" has been added which overrides, and will later replace, both the "FCC" and the "MoreCallsigns" parameters. This will allow the existing-template, when updated, to be backward-compatible with the existing template's articles, and will allow the "FCC" and "MoreCallsigns" parameters to be deprecated smoothly article-by-article as the updated-template is applied across the Wiki. When all related articles have been updated to use the "Callsigns" parameter, the "FCC" and "MoreCallsigns" parameters will be considered deprecated entirely, and will then be removed from the template.

In the test-template, the parameter "SysName" now has a default-value of (the system variable) "{{PAGENAME}}", which means that the parameter "SysName" will no longer be required on the TRS' primary-page, because the primary-page's name is the same as the TRS' name, and the Wiki engine will automatically place the page's name in place of the system variable "{{PAGENAME}}". If the InfoBox is applied to a TRS' secondary page (like RID/UID page, or Unknown TGs page, or other Trunking Info pages, etc.) then the "SysName" parameter would be used to specify the TRS' correct name on the TRS' secondary page.

TETRA related parameters have been added to the test-template, and can be hidden when unused/unrelated.
