Abstract

Since a communication system usually consists of many radios, it is possible for individual radios to become lost or stolen. This situation can be minor, such as the expense of replacing the radio, or be as serious as causing a security hazard. As might be the case in a secure (encrypted) system. Therefore, there must be a way to quickly determine the exact location of a radio. The following idea will allow someone to track a specific radio using moditica- tions to existing radio direction finding techniques.
