Today, the paging market is suffering from the lack of airtime in which to transmit messages. A method is needed to reduce the redundant portions of messages which are transmitted. This method suggests a flexible method of compression by the paging terminal which the pager then decompresses upon message reception. A desirable feature of this method of compression is to have the decompres- sion scheme independent of the paging protocol, i.e. FLEX, POCSAG, etc.
