Users of two-way radios with individual call capabilities may wish to qualify the reception of these calls. It may be desirable to block calls from other users, with the exception of those specified (such as supervisors, etc.), or in other circumstances it may be desirable to block the audible ergonomics of the call (during meetings, church, etc.) but still store the ID of the calling radio so a call-back can be made at a later time. These features would take advantage of the signalling handshaking that occurs between radios and the central controller when an individual call is attempted/made, and would also apply to any feature that audibly alerts a targeted individual radio.
