    Question Pager Question

    Hey All,
    Would anybody know a good pager to get that could support the 150 MHz range and the 46 Mhz range as well?

    Thanks!

    Default Pager

    Haven't heard of one that covers that wide of a spread. Most mobile radios wont even cover that range.

    not even the electronicly programmed ones? I have a mintior 3 for 153.845 for my FD in Maryland, but I'm going to college in PA, which uses 46 Mhz freqs. So I guess I might just need two pagers?!

    At this time, there is no such thing as a dual-band pager. You will need to either have two pagers or you can buy a dual-band mobile radio.

    EBay had a couple 46mHz pagers the other day. Just search for minitor III. Price was cheap at that time, not sure what it's at now.

    No such thing in existance now. Probably never will be either.

    There is no commercial or public safety portable radio on the market today that will do low band and VHF. The closest thing is a Vertex radio that does VHF & UHF. It is huge and I don't even know if it will do two-tone decode.

    Kenwood makes mobile radios that can be dual-banded. But that would be rather impractical for attaching to your waist.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
