Default Pagers

I have a "command" pager that I receive my pages on (Motorola Flex), and what I am wanting to know is can I put in more than one cap code? I ask because I program radios, not pagers.

I have a Motorola Advisor Elite pager that we all use at work.
There are slots for 16 (may be 12) capcodes.
Mine for example, has the main capcode for my pager and then all my supervisors also have a "group" capcode so I can send a page to just that group of people if needed.

About six or seven of the capcode slots are filled with the Datacast service capcodes.
And yes, this is a flex pager.

It's been a while since I've needed to program any of them but I seem to recall issues where certain combinations of capcodes would not work for some reason.
I only say that because once we had two users that needed to receive each others pages in addition to the group capcode.
One worked and he was paged when the other person received a page but the other one would not receive the other person's pages regardless of what slot we put the capcode in. I could put the other capcode in the 1st slot and it worked but then of course he did not get his pages. I only did that to make sure that pager did not have an issue with the capcode for some reason.

Good luck with whatever it is you are trying to do.

Yeah, I'm looking to add a couple of the other cap codes from different agencies.

Thanks for the info!
