Default Zetron Model 10 Help Needed

Mods, feel free to move this if I'm in the wrong place.

We have an old Zetron Model 10 encoder that we're trying to get to work again. Does anyone happen to have a book for this thing? (we can't find it)

I can get it to tone out single tone pairs (I think it's set for a standard 100 call group) (e.g. 22 gives a long 630Hz tone), but I need more than those 10 tones... (or a bunch of new reeds for our old pagers...)

TNX

unless I'm missing something, i can't find the manual for it.

Nothing's wrong with it, I just want to know how to program it for different code groups (the two DIP switch banks)

Those old Zetron encoders (100 call) were limited to a single code group. When you ordered them you had to specify a code group or the X group (custom). If you want to change groups, Zetron will then have to blow you a new prom, but alas you will be limited to one group only again.

Got it. I'll tell the folks at work that if they really want this old encoder to work, they'll have to re-reed some minitor II's... (God knows what that would cost...)

Friggin' government... try to use old crap, then ***** when it doesn't work (maybe that was why it was taken out of service in the first place?)
