Default Minitor Pager with NOAA WX

Hey,

I have a minitor 3 pager that I put the weather in but I can not get it to alert with the 1050.0 hz tone that is used when a warning or watch is issued. How does one make that happen in PPS?

Thank you!

If it is a Minitor III, you can set any tones for A and B, if you program C to 1050Hz, then set alert type to AB/Long C. I had this problem before, and this is how I solved it.

Yeah but then if you set the A and B to different tones, how will they activate i f the NWS only sends out a 1050Hz tone? Shouldn't you just leave the A and B Tones empty??

It is basically the same way some rescue/fire dispatchers alert all stations. The long C set to 1050 hz will alert in addition to the first two. My personal radios have the long B tone alert, so I set both tones to 1050 hz. It depends on the equipment.

This is a great idea, but I wonder what kind of coverage would one expect with the lower power NWS transmitters.
