In Motorola trunking systems today, the presence of interference at a base radio (BR) receiver is reported within the system infrastructure. The channel with the interference present will not be assigned for communications using an algorithm based on the signal level and the length of time the interference is present. Potentially, the interfered channel may not be available as a channel resource for a lengthy period of time. Also, with radio spectrum resources becoming scarcer over time, the pressure to allow frequency reuse within a trading area increases.
