In a multiple site trunking system, radios routinely roam between sites. When a radio is in an overlap site coverage area, the radio chooses a site among the viable sites using programmed algorithms and factors such as signal strength, available site resources and a preprogrammed preferred site list. Site selection factors based on dynamically chang- ing system operation, overall system efficiency and optimization concerns are not currently considered by the radios. This is because this type of informa- tion is not currently available to the radios.
