Coalition Character Type Changes

If you have a Coalition skill that says "If X, then your character becomes a Y," but it's unclear if the X condition is permanent, can you undo X to go back to being a normal person?
To use an example that's not one I know of existing, say you are Universal Mind. You have a skill that lets you pass out walkie talkies to other UM players and communicate across distance. It may say something like:
"If you have 4 or more walkie talkies in play on a single channel, you become a Node." In this case, a Node might have weird rules that apply to it regarding effects, healing, etc.
In the above scenario, could you just turn off the radio, take some back, or change your comms channel if you didn't want to be a Node anymore? Or is it that once you decide to do it, you're a Node for the rest of the event?
It's possible this is a case by case scenario and the answer changes based on the skill, but since it's a thing I know happens in multiple Coalitions, I figure I might as well ask about a potential general answer.
