[Operation of the embodiment]
Next, the operation of this embodiment will be described. In the following description, mobile phone 10A is located in a cell where base station 32A covers wireless communication, mobile phone 10B is located in a cell where base station 32B covers wireless communication, and mobile phone 10C is An operation when the station 32C is located in a cell that covers wireless communication will be described as an example.
[Standby operation]
First, an operation when the mobile phone 10 is turned on and the mobile phone 10 is in a standby state in which neither voice communication nor data communication is performed will be described.

  First, in a municipality where the disaster prevention radio system 20 is operated, for example, when a large earthquake occurs, the central device 21 is operated, and information indicating a message notifying the occurrence of the earthquake and a message for calling attention to the disaster are displayed. Information is generated. Then, the central device 21 is operated, and the generated information is sent from the central device 21 to the disaster prevention radio base stations 22A to 22C. When each disaster prevention radio base station receives the information sent from the central device 21, it converts the received information into a disaster prevention radio signal of a predetermined frequency band and transmits it.

  Here, when the base station 32A and the base station 32B are within the range where the disaster prevention radio signal transmitted from the disaster prevention radio base station 22A can reach, the base station 32A, 32B transmits the disaster prevention radio signal via the antenna 308A. 2 is received by the communication unit 308. When the second communication unit 308 receives the disaster prevention radio signal, the second communication unit 308 converts information represented by the received disaster prevention radio signal (a message notifying the occurrence of an earthquake and a message for calling attention to the disaster) into digital data (FIG. 4: step SA1). ).

  Next, the converted digital data is sent to the CPU 302. When the CPU 302 receives the digital data, the CPU 302 determines whether line connection is performed for voice communication or data communication. Here, since mobile phone 10A is on standby and no line connection is made (step SA2; NO), CPU 302 sends the digital data received from second communication unit 308 to first communication unit 307. Upon receiving the transmitted digital data, the first communication unit 307 converts the received digital data into a radio signal and transmits it from the antenna 307A (step SA3). When digital data is converted into a radio signal and transmitted, for example, a downlink common channel from the base station 32 to the mobile phone 10 is used, such as a channel used for transmitting broadcast information. Transmission is performed.

  The radio signal transmitted from the base station 32A is received by the communication unit 108 via the antenna 108A of the mobile phone 10A. When the communication unit 108 receives a radio signal representing information related to a disaster, the communication unit 108 converts information represented by the received radio signal (a message notifying of the occurrence of an earthquake and a message for calling attention to a disaster) into digital data (FIG. 5: step). (SB1; YES), the converted digital data is sent to the CPU. When the CPU 102 receives the digital data, the CPU 102 analyzes the digital data and generates display data for displaying information represented by the digital data, that is, a message notifying the occurrence of an earthquake and a message for calling attention to a disaster ( Step SB2) The generated display data is sent to the display unit 107. Upon receiving the display data, the display unit 107 displays information represented by the display data on the display unit 107 (step SB3). As a result, as illustrated in FIG. 6, the display unit 107 displays a message for notifying the occurrence of an earthquake and a message for calling attention to a disaster.

  Further, the radio signal transmitted from the base station 32B is received by the communication unit 108 via the antenna 108A of the mobile phone 10B in the cell of the base station 32B. Also on the mobile phone 10B, the message illustrated in FIG. 6 is displayed in the same manner as the mobile phone 10A. On the other hand, the base station 32C does not receive a disaster prevention radio signal here, and therefore does not transmit a radio signal obtained by converting digital data. For this reason, the mobile phone 10C in the cell of the base station 32C does not receive the radio signal output from the base station 32C, and does not display the message illustrated in FIG.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, the base station 32 receives the disaster prevention radio signal, and the base station 32 that has received the disaster prevention radio signal directly sends information related to the disaster to the mobile phone 10. Information on disasters can be communicated to the person in the disaster occurrence place without imposing a load on the exchange or the like constituting the equipment. Further, even when a disaster occurs and the line of the mobile telephone network 31 is congested, the mobile telephone network 31 does not relay information related to the disaster. Can be notified.

[Operation during voice communication]
Next, an operation when the mobile phone 10A performs line communication with the base station 32A via the mobile telephone network 31 and performs voice communication will be described. When voice communication is performed on the mobile phone 10A, a screen indicating that voice communication is being performed is displayed on the display unit 107 as illustrated in FIG. Here, when an earthquake occurs and the central device 21 generates information indicating a message notifying the occurrence of the earthquake and information indicating a message to call attention to the disaster, the generated information is transmitted to the disaster prevention radio base station. It is converted into a disaster prevention radio signal from 22A-22C and transmitted.

  Here, when the base station 32A and the base station 32B are within a range where the disaster prevention radio signal output from the disaster prevention radio base station 22A can reach, the base station 32A, 32B transmits the disaster prevention radio signal via the antenna 308A. 2 is received by the communication unit 308. When the second communication unit 308 receives the disaster prevention radio signal, the second communication unit 308 converts information represented by the received disaster prevention radio signal (a message notifying the occurrence of an earthquake and a message for calling attention to a disaster) into digital data (step SA1).

  Next, the converted digital data is sent to the CPU 302. When the CPU 302 receives the digital data, the CPU 302 determines whether line connection is performed for voice communication or data communication. Here, since the mobile phone 10A is line-connected through the base station 32A (step SA2; YES), the CPU 302 first disconnects all connected lines (step SA4). Then, the CPU 302 sends the digital data received from the second communication unit 308 to the first communication unit 307. Upon receiving the transmitted digital data, the first communication unit 307 converts the received digital data into a radio signal and transmits it from the antenna 307A (step SA3). When this wireless signal is received by the mobile phone 10A, the message illustrated in FIG. 6 is displayed on the display unit 107 in the same manner as when the mobile phone 10A is in a standby state.
