  • Patent number: 8565145
    Abstract: A method for transmitting a communication generated by an originating device to a target device using a repeating device is provided. In the method the communication is transmitted from the originating device and received at the repeating device. A repeater request sequence is transmitted from the originating device and retransmitted from the first repeating device to the target device before the repeater request sequence is received at the first repeating device.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8295825
    Abstract: Methods of enabling late entry into an on-going spread spectrum call are described. A late join frame replaces, and has the same size as, a traffic frame. A late join slot in the late join frame contains sufficient information in preamble and sync subframes to permit a target to join the call. The traffic slots in the late join frame replicate data such that call quality of the call is substantially unaffected if one of the remaining traffic frames is not received. The preamble and sync subframes frequencies may be the same as, or different from, preamble and sync frames frequencies during a call establishment phase of the call. If different, the preamble and sync subframes frequencies are selected from one or more frequencies. Use of the preamble and sync subframes frequencies is compensated for when selecting the traffic slot frequencies to obtain uniform utilization of the spectrum.

  • Patent number: 7383021
    Abstract: A technique for activating a transmit mode of a communication device (100) is provided encompassing the steps of generating a light signal on an outer surface of the communication device; inhibiting the light signal; and activating the transmit mode of the communication device in response to the light signal being inhibited. A communication device (100) operating in accordance with this technique includes a light transmitting device (108); and a sensor (110) for sensing light generated by the light transmitting device, the sensor disabling a transmit mode when light is detected and enabling a transmit mode when light is inhibited.

  • Patent number: 6055421
    Abstract: A radio receiver operates primarily in a first operating mode to process received signals (410). When a carrier signal detect is triggered while in the first operating mode (415, 420), the receiver temporarily operates in a second operating mode which has receiver parameters selected to reduce carrier detect falsing when compared to the first operating mode (430). Preferably, in the second operating mode, the receiver's frequency and time response characteristics are modified to facilitate carrier squelch detection. Carrier squelch is performed if a carrier signal detect is triggered while the receiver operates in the second operating mode (440, 450, 460, 470).
