As part of radio control systems management like SIMS for Smartnet or SmartZone Dispatcher for SmartZone, dispatchers located at a fixed termi- nal execute radio commands. Dispatchers regroup radios into different talkgroups, inhibit radios from transmitting or receiving signals, lock radio chan- nel switch selector, send call alert to a radio and allow the radio operator to respond by giving them the radio ID of the caller, and check if a radio is "alive? Dispatchers also monitor incoming events (trans- missions, requests) from the radio system. This monitoring involves, for example, the display ofradio transmissions such as talkgroup calls, reprogram requests, emergency alarms, statuses and messages.
