Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9641489A1] The effective transmission range of a wireless paging system is varied by changing the transmission data rate. Signal (31) is transmitted at a fast data rate to receivers (26) in a small transmission range (18) from transmitter (28). Signal (30) is transmitted at a slower data rate so that a receiver (26) can reliably receive messages over a larger transmission range (32) from the transmitter (28) for sparse transmitter coverage. The dual transmission data rates are transmitted either on separate subcarriers on the same FM channel, on the same subcarrier of different FM channels or alternatively on different subcarriers of different FM channels. In a region with dense transmission coverage, the receiver decodes transmission messages at the faster transmission data rate. In regions with sparse transmission coverage, the receiver decodes messages at the slower data rate.
