Radical changes to the UK DMR system.

From midnight on Monday 8th february all UK slot1 talkgroups will become User Activated.
You will hear nothing on a user activated talkgroup unless someone has already activated that talkgroup on your local repeater; therefore scanning on those talkgroups to listen for people calling CQ will be none productive.

The changes have been put on hold as scanning the TGs is working this morning. (08/02/16)
