Two quick questions, anyone know what 560 & 608 TG's are? Also, what does (Radio #) selector set to Dynamic Regroup means?

Got this from an interoperability document from the MT state gov:

"Dynamic regrouping enables individuals from different talkgroups to be brought together to communicate in the case of special situations. This feature lets a supervisor or dispatcher change the talkgroup assignments of individual radios without any action required by the radio operators. Regrouping assignment can be initiated rapidly, but not instantaneously. For example, radios to be regrouped must be turned on, in range, and listening only to the control channel. Therefore, regrouping is best suited for preplanned activities or occasional changes from normal routine. It
is NOT intended for emergency responses such as high-speed chases or for rapid deployment on a per incident basis."

In other words, could it be a patch.

No - not a patch.

Its a means to bring various individuals into a temporary talk group for a special
or emergency purpose. For example you could have 8 people with radios on a
trunk system but they all could be on a different talk group and they are needed
in a extremely short amount of time(like a search and resque team). There radios
are pre-programmed with this Dynamic Regroup feature and their radios can all be
brought automagicly to a temporary talk group in a quick fashion with nothing being
done by each of the individuals - it is only the dispatcher that needs initiate this from
a console. However - it has some limitations such as - each radio of course must be
powered on and monitoring the system CC. If an individuals radio is keyed up and in
transmit at the time the dispatcher initiates this there is a lag time and this persons
individual ID must be retried if the first attempt to regroup them does not take place.
Its not perfect but it works well most of the time. After the group is done with there
conversation each radio is released from the Dynamic Regroup and it returns to the
talk group the channel selector is set to. I think that is how it works for the most part.

Why not just use one of the inter op talk groups, such as Public Safety Common or Disaster Common? I was under the assumption that ALL radios had these talk groups programmed.

The Dynamic Regroup feature gives the advantage of reaching out to multiple people
on many different talk groups almost at the same time. Its a "time saver". If you have
to search around for many different people on many different talk groups it takes a lot
of time to locate them all especially if they are not on a talk group the dispatcher expects
them to be on.
