    DMR Key Features

    Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) preserves full channel width and divides it into alternating time slots that can each carry an individual call.
    Motorola maintains that two-slot 12.5 kHz TDMA-based systems (providing 6.25 kHz equivalency) is more efficient.
    This means that two separate conversations can be handled by the one repeater, on the same frequency but on a different "channel".
    TDMA technology for narrowband 12.5 KHz (6.25 equivalent-6.25e) provides advantages of:
    1. feature flexibility
    2. lower equipment costs
    3. longer battery life
    4. future-readiness
    5. spectrum efficiency
