Abstract

When a portable radio is used at night, its LCD display is difficult to view without backlighting. Radios presently have a means of activating the backlight when a dedicated backlight button is hit, or when any user input occurs. This gives the viewer a means to view the display while initiating an oper- ation, but it does not address instances when other radio events require the user's attention.
