another Minitor 5 Problem
Need help. We are still dispatching on VHF, have to its a rural area. We have Minitor 5
that are now missing pages. Constantly. If they page a call 3 times , 1 out of three they may activate. Some Minitor 5 activate more consistently than others. But in the last 3-4 months it has gotten considerably worse.
Nothing has changed on the programming side. Same Freq for years.
If you are listening, at times it almost sounds like the repeater was not "Warmed up", you can only hear a half set of tones.
The problems occur more on Private setting, if I am listeneing to the rest of the county
and scanning, the pagers will activate more frequently.
The old reliable Minitor II hit every time!
Any thoughts, any settings on the 5 that we can change.
Thanks and stay safe.
thanks for the responses...
Yes Communications is aware that there is a dispatch problem. The Paging equipment is 17 years old. They have swapped cards, same outcome. Tech advised ssytem needed to be rebooted, but would not do it due to age of system and concerns that the system would not come back up!
However, I have Minitor II's that do work more consistent. When A full set of tones hits
and only 1/3 of Minitor 5 pagers activate. It just seems like we have two problems.
The Paging system is scheduled to be replaced this month or next, equipment is here, waiting on install.
