Need help with pager tones
I've had a Vertex VX-180v for several years and moved to a new area a couple years back. I initally wasn't allowed to transmit on it so I used it as a 16 channel pager (oddly enough the cost of a normal pager is very similar to what I payed for my portable, go figure). Well anyways it worked fine like that. Though I do remember me and the store I bought it from had some issues on getting the blasted thing to accept my new department's alert tones. So recently I am now able to transmit with it and I took it in for him to add the PL codes so that I can properly use this thing like it's meant to be used. Well he once again had issues with the pager tones and now it's not alerting at all.
The tones I was told were my stations are:
on Freq 1 (153.86)
The guy at the store I got the radio from can't find those two frequencies on the list of tones. I looked at the list online and the closest thing to them is 426.6 and 977.6(or 2, can't remember off hand). So....need a hand here. He's trying to see if he can recover the old data that he put into my radio a few years ago, but he's since changed computers and it's highly unlikely that he'll be able to. Just in case it helps I'm with Station 3 (Shepherdstown) in Jefferson County WV.
Many thanks for any help.
