In a conventional two-way radio some means is needed to prevent an unauthorized person from using a stolen radio. A password system cannot be implemented if the radio does not have a keypad. One alternative is for the radio to request authorization from the base station automatically on power-up, and not to allow fur- ther operation until authorization is received.
