I think you are talking about talkgroups on hotspots. On repeaters, there are static and dynamic talkgroups. Hotspots also have auto static talkgroups.

The most basic description is as follows. When you key up a talkgroups it is dynamic and will timeout after 15 minutes of no use. This is to make it easier for people to share a repeater.

On a hotspot, you typically aren't sharing the hotspot with anyone. When you keyup a talkgroup it will be automatically activated, just like a dynamic talkgroup on a repeater. The difference is that it won't timeout. That talkgroup will remain active on your hotspot until you key up on a different talkgroup. It "feels" like a static talkgroup, but it isn't.

They needed a different name to show on the hotspot page and choose "auto-static".

You can disconnect an auto-static talkgroup by making a group call to talkgroup ID 4000.

I hope this helps,
