Abstract

In radio systems supporting a mobile and/or port- able subscriber base and using multiple RF chan- nels, there arises a need for subscribers to scan for a new channel upon power-up and upon channel loss. Oflentimes, this scanning can be planned intelligently by using information about available RF channels either broadcast on well-known control channels or inferred by the subscriber unit from information gathered during past usage.
