Title: Method for detecting a signal propagation time between a mobile radio terminal and a base station

Abstract: A method for detecting a signal propagation time between a mobile radio terminal and a base station in a mobile radio network in a mobile radio terminal, particularly for the purpose of localizing the mobile radio terminal which inserts a propagation time detection information item into a channel request message in order to signal to the base station that no channel reservation is necessary, and that only the propagation time detection needs to be carried out, so as to achieve significantly reduced loading of network resources.
