Abstract

Base stations in an extensive two-way CT2 sys- tem typically have overlapping coverage areas. These overlapping coverage areas cause problems when portable communication units attempt to reg- ister for two-way calling while crossing from one coverage area to another. In such an overlapping coverage area, two different base stations may be transmitting a similar beacon signal. Under such circumstances, the portable communication unit may be receiving an incoming call from a first base station when effectively located in a second cover- age area of a second base station. Thus, the incom- ing call will not connect to the portable communica- tion unit.
