A cellular radio system in which the mobile radio stations in the zone of any base radio station assign themselves to the control channels allocated to that base station so as to evenly spread the volume of traffic over such control channels. The base station transmits on each control channel a channel group code signifying the range of group code numbers allocated to that particular control channel. Each mobile station stores its identifying group code number, scans the group code numbers of all control channels, and assigns itself to the control channel having a channel group code which includes its group code number. The spread of traffic over the various control channels can be changed by the base radio station simply by changing the channel group codes of the various control channels, without addressing specific commands to the mobile radio station.
