James, There is a timeout based on inactivity. So if you are connected to CQ-CANADA-VE1AO, which although it has lots of attendees, they do not say much, so there is no "voice" traffic, then yes, it will default back after 15 minutes to our local room VE3YRC-ROOM. If another local user wants to use the repeater, they can do so with the usual protocols of ham radio. If there is nothing on that frequency/channel/room, then go ahead, pick up the mic and make your call. If the repeater is still connected to CQ-CANADA-VE1AO, then they will be heard by all in that room. If the repeater has moved back to the default VE3YRC-ROOM, then only local repeater users and anyone else in the VE3YRC-ROOM would hear. You are not "preventing" other users from using the repeater when connected to another room, but their calls may go further than they expect. The easiest thing to do is to use the WIRES-X button on your radio and let it "connect" to the repeater. That way you can see what ROOM the repeater is connected to, the local VE3YRC-ROOM or another from around the world. Also, if there is no voice communication going on on the repeater and it happens to be connected to a room in RUSSIA or TEXAS-NEXUS for example, a local user is able to change it to whatever room they desire, though again, it would be prudent to make a call out to see if anyone is currently using the repeater or wait a short period of time to listen for other users before making such a change. Hope that helps, Mike
