A problem with communication systems that have telephone interconnect capability, such as a Motorola Integrated Radio System (MIRS) or a Cel- lular system, is that at peak busy times there are not enough resources (i.e., RF channels, telephone lines, etc.) available to support all the users who wish to initiate mobile-to-land telephone calls. As a result, blocking occurs and the subscriber user receives an audible indication that the call cannot be immedi- ately placed. Users have no idea how busy the sys- tem is when they attempt to place a call.
