Good question, I assumed it is CC 1.

But that shows more info should be posted on the web site.

Color Codes are analogous to PL tones on an analog FM repeater. 

As such, the 4 States Talk group doesn’t have a color code per se. If you access the 4S TG via a repeater, your code plug channel should have the appropriate color code set so the repeater will recognize your transmission and let you in. 

Hotspots typically are set up to use CC1. Again, this let’s you access your hot spot. Nothing specific to the talk group(s).

Hi Jim,

Color Codes and Time Slots are set by the repeater or hotspot owner, so we need a little more information: 

Are you trying to get in via a personal hotspot, or through a local repeater? 

The ZumSpot hotspots running Pi-Star are set to use Color Code 1, Timeslot 2 by default. Most people don't change that.

For repeaters, it depends on how the repeater owner set it up.

Hmmm . . . 
After all that is set up, and you have gained access through the repeater, and the correct channel code, and color code, and time slot, now you're down the correct hallway, select the correct chatroom door, you must know the correct door knock, password, and secret handshake!!
Phhht!

It's really not so bad. But like anything else in amateur radio, there's something new to learn if you want to give it a try.

It helps to have a friend get you started. If a buddy helps you set your new radio up, then talking with the rest of the 4-States gang is as easy as turning a knob to Channel 1, hitting the push-to-talk button, and saying hello.

From there you can start learning about the required pieces of information you need to make your radio do what you want. Again, there's just a few pieces of info, depending on whether you are using your own hotspot, or someone else's repeater.

In either case, you need to know:

- Frequency
- Color Code
- Time Slot
- Talk Group

No 'secret handshake' required :-)
