Currently, scanning pagers have one way com- munication only and there is no capability of auto- matically tracking pager location. Therefore, either duplicate messaging or user identification of current location is necessary. If these tracking requirements are not met, transmitted pages are lost during transit from one reception area to another. Echo1 Back Scan- ning (EBS) protocol solves these problems. Echo Back Scanning will also repeat missed pages in recep- tion range and allow for pagers to be moved from one overlapping system to another for various applications.
