Abstract

A typical pager only notifies the user when a page has been successfully decoded. If no page alerts are given, the user has no way of knowing whether his pager is actually receiving signals from the transmitter. The pager needs: a. a means of detecting that it is out bf transmitter range or that the transmitter is down. b. a means of conveying this information to the user. c. a means of notifying the user that the pager is again receiving data.
