Hello. As you know with Brandmeister, as soon as someone PTT on a Talkgroup, the transmission becomes available to all repeaters on all Brandmeister master servers. This is done through the FastForward links between all the masters. If a Parrot Talkgroup were to be created, this would have multiple negative effects, the most important ones being: the audio tests would create unnecessary traffic on the entire Brandmeister network, and only one person at a time could use the Talkgroup because in BM all Talkgroups are distributed worldwide.

This is why it makes more sense for the Parrot functionality to be a private contact; which is routed directly from the sender to the recipient.

With regards to the MD655, PD0ZRY has posted a screenshot showing how you can create an entry in your codeplug using a private contact instead of a Talkgroup, which will work for the Parrot functionality:

Let us know if you have further questions. Thanks!
