Hi just want to ask when setting up talks groups on dmr radio do they normally use the same repeater frequency has the main repeater that you are using for example my local repeater is GB7FW uplink 430.6625 downlink 439.6625 and you just create talkgroups with ids TG235, TG80,TG81 ect ? let me know if I am right or wrong about this thanks.

Sounds like you are on the right track.
Certainly for Phoenix repeaters, I would make each of the main TalkGroups a Channel within the Zone that represents the Repeater.
(If your radio only allows 16 Channels per Zone then you could have a Zone for the TimeSlot1 TalkGroups and another Zone for the TS2 TGs)
But yes, these channels will all have the same frequencies and Colour Code, but the TS will change according to the TG.

Thanks very much Malcolm for getting back to me yes it took me about a week after getting my first radio to work it out, I was searching to find a code plug for my local repeater which is GB7FW in Birminghm but had no luck so I decided to try and write my own with the information I found online about my local repaeater just wanted to check I was doing right so yes you have answered my qustion just right thank you for your help.

Hi Keith,,, I am new to this Ham radio. I have managed to program the GB7FW into my Retevis RT, was wondering if you are willing to share your version of codeplug ? I am curious to try on my Transceiver .
