The system described here divides a conventional system coverage area into individual local areas that may each contain unique services. The local areas are created by placing medium to low power transmitters that send site ID information in a designated local area. These transmitters are arranged throughout the system in logical groupings to create the logical local area. The types of unique functionality associated with each local area may be contained within the sub- scriber unit or alternatively sent directly by the local transmitter. In the former case, the radio may contain a table of site ID's with their corresponding function in reprogrammable memory. In this way the services of each local area can be dynamically changed during radio operation.
