Sensitive communication portable equipment such as a "Secure" 2 way radio can be lost or stolen. Lost equipment is a high security risk for a secure communication system, especially if users of such systems do not know that the equipment is lost. Unreported lost or stolen units can be used to mon- itor or disrupt normal communication over a long period of time. This scenario can occur if the unit is a backup unit that is not used in day to day operation.
