Code Division Multiple Access

A spread spectrum approach for the digital transmission of data/voice over radio frequencies. Sound bits are digitized and the data is split into data packets that are encoded with unique identification tags. All of the data/voice is sent over a spread range of radio frequencies. The cell phone or data device receives all of the data packets but only re-assembles those packets with the correct code and transforms the broken-up bits of data into useful sound and data. This allows more traffic for a finite number of available frequencies than analog or the other digital standards.
My LG phone does CDMA, TDMA, and GSM, as well as analog modes.

SOS
SOS really doesn't stand for anything, as any radio operator will tell you,

it is simply "SOS" becuase the letters S and O are very easy to understand under conditions of high interferance.

so stop saying "Save our whatever"
