  pager \pag"er\, n.
     A small electronic communication device which signals when a
     telephone call has been received at a base station. Each such
     device receives radio signals from the base station
     specifically coded for the individual to whom it is
     registered; the signal given by the device to the registered
     user may be a beeping sound, indicating that the user should
     call the base station to receive a message; or it may display
     a telephone number to which the user may call directly to
     return the incoming call, or may display a short message.
     Such devices are small enough to carry in the pocket or
     pocketbook, or to clip onto a belt or other part of the
     clothing. Also called beeper.
