Selective call receivers, including pagers, generally comprise a receiver and decoder board, each having a plurality of electrical components placed primarily on one side. The receiver and decoder board typically require RF shielding to protect the electrical components from RF interference. This RF shielding is commonly pro- vided by a stamped piece of sheet metal or something similar and placed in-between the receiver and decoder board. The positioning of the receiver/decoder board and RF shield has not been critical due to the relatively large size ofthe typical selective call receiver.
