Pilot Beacon

This is found on a transmit only base station that broadcasts a Pilot Channel, a Sync Channel, optionally a Paging Channel or a Broadcast Control Channel, but not Forward Traffic Channels. The MS (Mobile Station) measures the pilot beacon to assist in CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) hard handoffs and inter frequency idle mode handoffs.
