Today's conventional integrated voice and data radio systems allow subscriber radios to utilize scan operation for voice alone. A radio may be programmed to listen to a list of channels and pause on any given channel when it receives a call which matches its programmed squelch parameters, Each outbound call is of course an asynchronous event. The consequence to the voice user is then limited to the possible late entry to a conversation. With voice this is a relatively benign condition that has long been accepted by the radio user. The question in an integrated voice/data system then becomes what methods can be used to allow data reception under similar circumstances.
