The basic purpose of this invention is to offer a method for achieving fault tolerance for specific !?equency dependent features without having redundant, backup base stations programmed with these frequencies. This methodology allows for unique feature sets, such as BSI, control channel, paping, and data, to be accessible on pre-determined specific frequencies that correspond to each feature. For example, control channel operation is always done on 806.0125 MHz, BSI operation is always done on 806.0625 MHz, and so on. Each base station wiII be frequency agile so that dynamic allocation of pro- grammed frequencies can be utilized to obtain fault tol- erant protection for a desired frequency dependent feature.
