Automatic static talkgroups were created to make certain talkgroups static on a certain day of the week. For example, you country has a net that people can call in to every wednesday evening between 8 and 9pm on TG 2067 (for example in Belgium). Then the sysops of the repeaters that want to participate into this net on a weekly basis can configure this talkgroup to become 'static' between those times so their uses can hear the talkgroup without having to keep it active by pressing the PTT every 10 minutes.

The automatic part is useful for sysops so they don't have to add it and remove it from the repeaters static talkgroups before the net starts and after it ends every week.

Auto static talkgroup is the last keyed talkgroup and it appears automatically as a static talkgroup until you keyup another talkgroup and not based on a certain time of the week. The scheduled talkgroups are talkgroups that you schedule for a specific day and time of the week.

The auto static now seems to be very useful for hotspots as you will not have to keyup every 10 or 15 minutes like you would if the talkgroup is set as a dynamic talkgroup on the local repeater. This works well if the auto static deactivates when you keyup a TG or a scheduled talkgroup turns on.
