I agree that on a simplex hotspot, the thing to do is to disconnect the TG (using the BM API tool in pi-star, for example) before keying up the new TG. I suspect that with the short hold-off timer, busy TGs like 91 become re-active before they die out (after 15 minutes) if you're just listening to the new TG after initial key-up.

This is the great benefit of a duplex hotspot. You can use one TS for switching, and the other for monitoring.
I couple of guys complained to me about this today, as they mistakenly thought it was the OpenGD77 somehow not filtering on the new TG.
And I keep having to explain, its Brandmeister that is continuing to send the traffic on the old TG, and its nothing to do with the OpenGD77 not filtering it out.
And that is precisely why US BM sysadmins lengthened the hold-off timer to 5 minutes. The short hold-off is problematic imo

I will try contacting Adrian VK4TUX who is the BM AU admin and ask him if he would change it.

I don't think Adrian VK4TUX is the AUS BM admin anymore. I think it is Ian, but I don't remember his call...

OK

I emailed Adrian, but he has not replied yet.

I'll try to find out who is the current BM admin for AU
