Title Method for field programmable radio frequency document identification devices Abstract A method that allows one to mark information with a pencil on a material equipped with a RFID type circuit, and have the marked information stored in a RFID circuit that is a component of a personal identification system and/or a document identification system. The marked entered information may be corrected by erasing the written information with a pencil eraser and writing new information on paper with a pencil. Information may also be marked into a RFID circuit and have the marked information stored in the RFID circuit by utilizing a standard ink jet computer printer to print lines on paper equipped with a RFID type circuit, by having the printed lines perform the function of wires. Exmp. Claim 1 Ex Claim text A method for sending information from identification documents having a radio frequency identification (RFID) circuit with a number generation portion that is activated when the RFID circuit is read, said method comprising the steps of: a) exposing on a material data bits of the number generation portion of the RFID circuit in a manner that the data bits will represent binary ones or zeros; and b) altering on a material the data bits of the number generation portion of the RFID circuit in a manner that the data bits will represent binary ones or zeros to identify the identification document.
