Abstract

Typical Land Mobile Radio users require involvement in multiple communications groups to accomplish their given tasks and goals. In particu- lar, supervisory personnel need to coordinate multi- ple Workgroup activity and maintain constant com- munications with these teams in order to react to given situations in conjunction with the most up to date information from the associated groups. Because these communications offen occur simultaneously, supervisory radio users are only in contact with one of their groups through talkgroup selection meth- ods, scanning or priority scanning. These supervi- sory personnel require the ability to simultaneously monitor multiple communications groups associated with their activity. They need the ability to select which communications group to transmit to with- out losing the ability to actively monitor the associated groups. Finally, these supervisors need to be capable of changing which communications group need to be simultaneously monitored.
