All times are local.

Users may interrupt the link by issuing the standard unlink command.
The user then has 10 minutes to link to another system before the scheduler attempts to re-connect. If the repeater is already linked when the scheduled time rolls around, the scheduler will not interrupt a previously established link unless the timeout period (one hour with no local transmit activity) expires.
