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.

I thought the automatic static talkgroup was the same as the last keyed talkgroup that appears as automatically appears static not based on a certain time of the week. The scheduled talkgroups appear to be similar to the automatic talkgroup described above. Please clarify. Thanks
