Soft ID is an existing two-way radio feature using a short user-configurable alphanumeric identifier which is transmitted in a digital voice transmission using embedded low speed data fields. This ID is a supplement to the numeric individual ID which is currently used to distinguish between radio units during transmission. The Soft ID allows the assignment and subsequent transmission of a unique identifier which a decoding radio unit can display for the user's information.
