This invention is related to trunked radio systems that provide communications over a wide geographic area. In particular it will consider the case where two or more of these wide area systems have at least one geographic area of desired service provision in com- mon. Many times these radio systems are privately owned by governmental bodies or by larger industrial users such as utility companies and the like. Private ownership, as opposed to commercial shared system access, is desired in many cases where the users demand full radio system control, desire rapid imple- mentation of new features, and when they must always be guaranteed that "their" channels (system resources) are always available to them. This invention will address these touchy private user issues while allow- ing them some of the economic benefits of the shared systems approach.
