In a wide area private trunked system, such as a Motorola SmartZone system, some customers have chosen, due to jurisdictional control reasons, to have sites with large amounts, and at times, com- plete, overlap. These sites with large overlap have differing amounts of resources available and are intended for use by different user groups, An exam- ple of this could be a wide area system where there is a high density (i.e. many channels) simulcast site for police patrol units that completely covers a low density site for a prison. The customer intends for the correct users to use the correct system during steady state condition. This can be accomplished using the existing technology such as the preferred site algorithm used in the subscriber unit.
