During a call, the level of the handset's radio signal adjusts automatically accord-
ing to the distance between the handset and base station: the shorter the dis-
tance, the lower the signal strength (radiation).
The handset's radio signal is switched off when it is in standby mode. The base
station, however, maintains contact with the handset with fewer radio signals.
In addition, the base station radio signals are switched off when the No Radia-
tion setting is enabled.

For quick connection of incoming calls the handset repeatedly switches to
reception mode for short periods. This increases energy consumption and
therefore reduces the standby and talk times.
