Since our wiki doesn't have them (and I would assume you have already asked on other boards), you're going to need to do some homework. Fortunately no modifications to your scanner are needed, and there are a few free programs that you can use to measure the tones. You can find them linked at the bottom of;

Fire Tone Out - The RadioReference Wiki

I am guessing you are using a scanner hioked to a computer running a decode program. What program and does it require anything other than pluging into the sound card?

Default Looking for Fire Pager Tones

This might be a good time to add a link for a standard tone chart http://www.midians.com/pdf/tone_signaling.pdf The reason I point this out is that it might be a good idea to make sure we use standard tones unless we know they are using non-standard tones. For example, the Rosemount Fire tone listed is:

979.7 1512

However, when you look at the chart you realize that Reed Group 3/Tone 6 is actually 979.9 Also, 1512 should be 1513.5 hZ. If I recall correctly, many pagers and other tone alert receivers might have a tolerance of a couple of hertz either side of the actual tone. Thus, a receiver programmed for 1512 would respond to 1513.5 hZ. Again, I just point this out so that people know that there is a standard. Similar to CTCSS, a decoder might display a CTCSS as 100.4 hZ, when it should be 100.0 hZ. So, to look again at Rosemount Fire, it could be listed as:

Tone A 979.9 hZ

Tone B 1513.5 hZ

And for those concerned about timing, the newest Unidens handle that without having to program the timing.

Paging technical information for voice pager users

Just an fyi all departments at least on the Henn system will be going to a 700 mhz tone system sometime in the near future. My understaning is that only minitor 5 pagers are able to be reprogrammed for this.
