Abstract

Many of the Data systems that are currently pro- vided offer a means of receiving data via a terminal attached to a mobile radio. Many users do not have the luxury of being near a mobile data radio. Described below is a device that would extend the data feature to a portable user. Portable radio users typically do not have graphical space or means to view data received from a host computer.
