VolTAC (or yet another reason I need a TYT MD-380):
VolTAC is a talkgroup that was created in response to user request, and after carefully considering it we have determined it is a good idea and fits the theme of our network.
This is a local only, unlinked talkgroup and has been approved for usage on the Knoxville, Sevierville, Greeneville, and Kingsport repeaters.

The idea was born out of a discussion that happened on our Facebook group. Many of our users are UT Sports fans (including the Sysop that maintains this website!) and the idea was presented to have a "tactical" talkgroup for fans with DMR radios to use on gameday in or around the Knoxville area.

The current plan is to link the Knoxville and Sevierville repeaters together on scheduled home football games. This is to provide wide area coverage to fans in and around the area. The talkgroup is permissible to be used outside of gameday or other UT events, but please be mindful of system loading as this will be competing for resources on timeslot 1 like everything else.

During non UT events, local on timeslot 1 is still the best choice for local comms.
