In a FLEXT" roaming environment, a pager can be operating within an overlap area between differ- ent coverage areas. In such an overlap area, for example as shown in position A of Figure I on the next page, the pager can be receiving valid signals on one or more channels and, therefore, has to monitor all the channels. The pager can monitor all the channels by using frame offset values that are unique to each of the channels as shown, for example, with two channels in Figure 2.
