The intent of the invention is to prevent radio/pager users from losing their units (beeper or radio, which- ever the caSe may be). Many units are lost because users may drop them and are not aware that they have dropped them (e.g. a beeper in a crowded train station). Others might just be unaware that they misplaced the radios (e.g. the utility company worker which forgets his radio on the truck's root). This invention will alert both user and dispatcher that she/he has dropped the unit and will lose it ifleft unattended.
