    168,

    So the only change between reliable pager activation and unreliable activation is the change from Min-2 to the Min-5, correct? You did not change any other equipment, repeater, base station, tone encoder, reconfigure your tones, etc?

    I have heard but never experimented to confirm that there may be an increase in missed activation if the frequency of the tone is too high. Most of ours are around 1300-1400 Hz at the highest, but have one set that tops out at 2400 Hz.

    Yep, everything remains the same except our receivers (Minitor V). Our handhelds that are set up to alert on tone alert just fine on our calls. I am really thinking about trying to get the dept to check into Swissphones...

    Do you know if the audio reception on the Minitor V when it is located in an area where it misses the alert is degraded in some way?

    There is a setting in the Minitor V that sets the sensitivity to opening the squelch. Could that be misprogrammed in your units?

    If you are getting interference you need to have your pager reprogrammed and have the "falsing" level adjusted. The county our shop covers just purchased 300 + V's and about 50 came back with this complaint. The level 1 setting fixed 90% of the complaints. Its a convenient hidden menu.....after reading the pager close the user setting till you have the white back ground in programmer software and hit the letter "S" will bring up the falsing slider, cheers.

    I loved the Minitor II's myself. This was the last pager Motorola manufactured in the United States. Now everything is outsourced to Unication in Taiwan. There are still some dealers that have replacement parts for the II's if you dont mind the extra weight on your belt.
