Instant "stop talk" indication in half duplex private call

Introduction

In half duplex calls only one side can talk at any given moment. There are cases when one side is talking and the "listener" can't respond until the talker will stop talking, the problem is that the "listener" may want to say a very short sentence or may even want to stop the "talker" because of low audio quality or for any other reason, but can't do it. The Instant "stop talk" indication come to solve problem like this.

The idea

The idea is that when a user is a "listener" in a half duplex private call, a special softkey will appear offering the user sending a predefined (Optionally may be editable through menu) instant "stop to talk" message using SMS/SDS protocol, by one key press to the "talker". The "talker", upon receiving a SMS/SDS message from the "listener”, identified by the "listener" ISSI/ID, will give the "talker" a special indication (Special tone, display etc ...) and will allow him read the message instantly and decide whether to stop talking and enable the "listener" to request to talk, or not. The idea enable the "listener" to ask the "talker" to stop talking during half duplex private call in a very quick and intuitive way. This idea can be used in any mobile radios, which support half duplex private call.
