To date, systems featuring call handoff have com- monly selected their handoff destinations using inferred signal quality metrics. For example, talkout signal strength from candidate handoff destinations can be used to estimate the talkint signal strength that would be realized at that destination in the event a handoff to it is executed. Such estimates assume talkin and talkout path losses are compara- ble. Also, they require accurate knowledge of effec- tive radiated power and receive antenna gain for both talkin and talkout directions.
