Abstract

In today's two-way hand-held portable radio mar- ket, radio size and duty cycle are feature drivers, In an attempt to move toward smaller physical (smaller battery) and longer operating lifetime, an emphasis is being made to reduce operating current consump- tion. In a typical hand held two-way radio, transmit power is typically 3-Swat& Even though usage models indicate that transmit mode is a small percentage of the operating mode, it consumes a large amount of power. This publication outlines a method for scal- ing back the transmit power under appropriate con- ditions in order to reduce operating current consumption.
