During a call, the level of the handset's radio signal adjusts automatically according to the
distance between the handset and base station: the shorter the distance, the lower the sig-
nal 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 Radiation setting
is enabled.

Please note
All registered handsets must support this feature.
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.
