Timeslot-2
Timeslot 2 implements the use of reflectors similar to the Dstar network. The easiest way to use the reflector is to program your radio with Talkgroup 9 (local) in timeslot 2. This is the only talkgroup you will need for a QSO on the reflector.

To link and unlink the reflector, program the radio with the reflector number as a group call on timeslot 2. To link to a reflector, select the reflector number from the contacts list and transmit for about 1 second. The repeater should respond with a voice announcement, "Connect to reflector xxxx". Then go back to Talkgroup 9 to make a QSO. 
To unlink select 4000 from the contacts list, transmit for about 1 second, and you should hear a voice announcement "Reflector Disconnected". 

To enquire about the reflector link status call 5000, and the repeater will respond with the currently linked reflector.

If you do not have the North West Link in your code plug use this method to connect to it using the reflector number 4412*
