MIN 5 Programming
Hey gang, question for you:
We have one channel Minitor V pagers. We are wanting to add another tone activation to them on the same frequency. I am trying to find a way to do this:
A: Fire Alert tone 1
B: Fire Monitor tone 1
C. Fire Alert Vib tone 1
D. Fire Alert tone 1 and also a tone 2 for other types of calls
What I mean about tone 1 is the normal tone for all fire calls. A new tone 2 is needed for other things when tone 1 is NOT activated. (just to make it confusing it still needs to activate for tone 1.)
Example: Pager is set to "D" JUST tone 2 is sent out; pager need to activate. Pager is set to "D" JUST tone 1 is sent out; pager needs to activate.
We need to add a new tone that will only alert a small group of people. I just need the pager to activate for the new tone 2. I have a feeling I need a 2 channel pager. Yes, I am confused also.This space for rent

Why would you need a two-channel pager if you only have one channel. Everything you want to do is a programming change you or your dealer can do.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

Not so easy
Because we cover parts of three counties we wanted to add a second tone to the Minitor V pagers we have bought over the last few years. We were told that we had to request the second tone capability when we purchased the units. Adding a second tone was not installable in these units. In other words we had to purchase 35 new pagers, not likely to happen on a volunteer departments budget. Looking at text capabilities in the 911 system along with our pagers for the future instead.

Be careful not to confuse a 2-channel pager with one that can accept more than one tone set. Even a single channel pager (which you have) can accept multiple tone sets. I understand how you want the pager set up, but I don't have the software here in front of me to think of how to do it. You might need to use the on/off duty settings. I'll take a look when I'm near a computer that has the Minitor V programming software on it. You can download the software from Motorola's website:
You can program them yourself if a) you know what you're doing and b) you buy or build a programming cradle.

A tone checked for address off-duty will not alert in a function mode that is also set for off-duty. A tone not checked address for off-duty will alert in all function modes.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
