  • Patent number: 6788955
    Abstract: In a radio communication apparatus according to the present invention, an expansion of the functional capabilities to allow for checking whether functional settings made for a previous communication are different from functional settings for a current communication. Then, if so, notification is made so that the functional settings can be restored to their original states. When an operator sets status registration mode by means of predetermined keys on an operator section for the occasion of an operator change, for example, the micro controller unit (MCU) records functional setting data at that point in the data table of a RAM. Then, when the operator sets a status confirmation mode by the use of predetermined keys in order to resume communication, the MCU records functional setting data at that point corresponding to the functional setting data for the previous communication and the functional items associated therewith.
