    I've heard the same about them as I have for every other fire-service pager......

    They work good for some and not-so-good for others...... We're waiting on a demo pager to try out for ourselves.......

    My dept. has been using Apollo Alpha pagers for the last 5-6 years. We love them. When we first switched from audible paging to alpha paging we used the Motorola pagers. They were nothing but junk. Always needing to be reprogrammed, sucked through batteries, etc. The Apollo's we have never had a hic-up with. A couple of years ago they started to offer a model called the XP with an amplified base that is also a charger for the pager. This unit when going off with the pager in the base is as loud if not louder than a Minitor going off. Any other questions just ask.

    Thanks, we just got 4 of them 3 weeks ago, and so far the guys love them. The reception is better, and the audible is great, not to mention cheaper than motorola. We had alot of problems with our minitor 4's. Thanks again, for the info.

    Something to remember about Apollo pagers is Apollo took the Minitor V to China and had them copy the pager. The VP100 they took a Motorola keynote to China and had them make it. You are buying a cheaper version of the Motorola made with cheaper parts. The reliability I would be scared of. Just my opinion but knowing all the problems Motorola has had I would be apprehensive in spending money on Apollo.
