    Question scanning

    am a part time firefighter and am looking for more call alerting than just scanner or minitor pager, does anyone know a cost effective way i could "rig" up station tones or a light to go off when pager is alerted. I know sounds goofy but some one else has had to have done it. also would go great with fire house theme to finish my basement.

    A little on the Whacker side brother so be prepared for some sarcastic responses

    Veetronix makes the Alert receiver that has switched outputs on the back that are powered up when it decodes your tones. You could hook these up to light switches, a garage door opener and if you really wanted to go overboard a bell.

    If I did this stuff I'd end up in divorce court but if you can get away with it, more power to ya

    Sorry bro...I like you guys but not THAT much

    Besides, never say never, as long as the Northwood Schools keep passing levies there's always a chance of talking her into moving

    Back in the 1960's we had boxes (alert radio receiver) that had a regular door bell hooked up to the thing, so when the tones hit, the bell would ring.

    I have no idea how it was rigged but it worked.

    If you are using a minitor, get them to get you a amp/charger. It is about three times as big as the regular charger and adjusted correctly, it will blast you from a coma!!!

    I just have to ask a question, why do you want to turn your home into a fire station? If you have a Minitor it should be close enough to hear if you keep the charger by your bed, and wear the pager on your belt. I have known guys who rig up thier houses and they are now all either divorced or cant get a girlfriend to stick around for more than a couple weeks. I dont want to kill your buzz man but dont be a FARKLE.
