by Volker Martschink

INTRODUCTION

  This paper deals with improving the link between standard office applications (e.g. MS Word, Excel, etc) and radio systems.

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED

  In larger radio networks the user often requests to contact people by phone. Therefore he has to look up the number in a telephone list and to enter it manually into the radio, or he has to contact an operator to get the required connection. A faster and easier way is described below.

PROPOSED SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM

  Especially radios with an alpha-numeric display offer the possibility to store names and according tcle- phone numbers into the radio memory. By selection of a name, the radio will transmit the respective telephone number to a base-station with installed telephone inter- connect. Subsequently the user will be connected to the requested person via phone.

To enter the names and numbers automatically into the radio memory the following solutions are applicable:

  1) Especially, larger companies maintain telephone directories by using office applications like MS Word or Excel. The Radio Service Software (RSS) will read files of these office applications containing the

  2) A noteboo...
