In a wide area digital private trunked system, such as a Motorola SmartZone system, the system consists of many RF channels. These channels operate as FDMA and use separate frequencies for both transmit and receive. These channels operate in a noisy environment susceptible to interference from many sources. Thus, these resources must be continuously monitored by the fixed end to deter- mine malfunctions and other errors. When errors occur, the channel is disabled and alarm messages generated to alert repair personnel. These resources arc also maintained on a regular basis to ensure opti- mal functionality.
