Abstract

The invention is a priority inversion system which allows radio users to override an otherwise effective priority scheme for site selection, when their specific location causes them to be cut off from their talk group. In an iDEN system, a radio is capable of using a site which has lost connection to the network for communications among the cells in that site. The radio is programmed to utilize the network when possible and to only use the non- networked (isolated) site when no networked site is available.
