Abstract

In a voted audio communication system wherein devices such as comparators are used to compare audio from multiple remote sites and pass through the system that audio which is deemed to be of the best quality, it is desirable that a user of the system know which site the audio he is hearing is originat- ing from. For instance a field engineer might find this information useful when out in the field opti- mizing a system. To have an indication on one's portable or mobile radio display indicating which site the audio one is listening to has come from can help in the more efficient optimization of such sys- tems. If the user is not in a fringe coverage area, and the voted site indication shows that the site from which the audio has been voted is a site other than the closest site to the user, this can be indicative of a system problem.
