Abstract

Currently, whenever a person is paged, there is some doubt as to whether the person is wearing their pager. One possible solution to this problem is to have the pager transmit a signal to acknowledge receipt of a page. However, this solution requires the addition of circuitry and complexity to the pager. This invention alleviates the problem without the addition ofcircuitry to the pager.
