There are many situations where customers uti- lize both trunked radios and digital pagers. Currently, to activate a pager from a trunked radio, the operator ofthe trunked radio must either utilize a land based telephone or must place a trunked telephone inter- connect call. This is because the typical interface to activate a digital pager is through a telephone. For a trunked radio user, using a land based telephone may not be possible, practical or convenient and using a trunked telephone interconnect call is wasteful of system resources. Further if a telephone intercon- nect call is used it requires that the radio be equipped for telephone access.
