In conventional radio systems, subscriber users can select whether to operate on frequencies which will be repeated by infrastructure or which talk directly to other subscribers (talkaround/direct mode). Users may choose to enter talkaround/direct mode because they are out of the coverage area of the repeater, the repeater is not functioning proper- ly, or they may not want to be repeated for whatever reason.
