The RF Data Receiver is designed to provide a mobile computer user the capability of receiving large alphanumeric messages, such as E-mail, and small data files over the air. Such a receiver, capable of being car- ried comfortably on one's person, generally has the prob- lem of limited antenna aperture and power source capacity. Lap top and transportable computers have size and weight characteristics that make them too large to carry comfortably on the person also. When these prod- ucts are installed in a motor vehicle some of these issues can be overcome with only limited loss of mobility.
