Abstract

There is a need for a common global trunking subscriber unit that does not need a unique character display, does not require special ordering information, and does not require special field programming via a programming station to be used in different environ- ments that require dierent languages. Information that is generally conveyed to a subscriber user via a radio display can be conveyed to the user via dynamically pro- grammed voice messages. Display radios that are sold in diierent countries that utilize diierent alphabets need special character displays that are compatible with the local alphabet. Programmable digital voice messages can be used instead of displays, the trunking fxed end can simply program the radio with a set of digital voice mes- sages that are ofthe appropriate language.

OVER THE AIR PROGRAMMING OF DYNAMIC SUBSCRIBER VOICE MESSAGES

by Jerry Gard and Ted Kozlowski

   There is a need for a common global trunking subscriber unit that does not need a unique character display, does not require special ordering information, and does not require special field programming via a programming station to be used in different environ- ments that require dierent languages. Information that is generally conveyed to a subscriber user via a radio display can be conveyed to the user via dynamically pro- grammed voice messages. Display radios that are sold in diierent countries that utilize diierent alphabets need special character displays that are compatible with the local alphabet. Programmable digital voice messages can be used instead of displays, the trunking fxed end can simply program the radio with a set of digital voice mes- sages that are ofthe appropriate language.

The canned digital voice messages stored in subscriber units are reprogrammed over the air. The pro-

gramming takes place in two diierent situations. When the radio first powers up and has not yet initiliied its list of voice messages, it automatically requests the tied end to transmit the default list of voice messages so the subscriber unit can store them.

  The second situation is when the system manager determines that a radio or group of radios should be reprogrammed with a dierent set of digital voice mes- sages. The syst...
