• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I did a search and didnt find anything and am hoping someone could point me towards this..

I am looking for software that would send a page / text message when it decodes a 2 tone. Where I am at sometimes I get our tone page on my M5 and sometimes I just simply don't.

Any ideas?

This program might be a start: http://comtekk.us/two-tone-decoder.htm?gclid=COzCq5XbvZMCFSgtagodA3cbCA

Maybe if you ask they'll add this as a feature. 8)

If I knew what an M5 was, I might be better able to consider your question. The only time that term has previously been used on this forum was in reference to the BMW. I assume you are not referring to your car.

Thats a common shorting name of the motorola minitor 5, the newest version of the minitor pager series. Seeing as how he was talking about receiving pages, it's fairly easy to guess he was talking about a pager of some sort.


Maybe instead of making over 340 posts in a month and a half, a little reading would be in order ;)

Sure, if you're into making assumptions. I am not. And considering that there are many other receivers that do tone decoding, it is not such an obvious assumption to make.

Thanks for the assumption, but not only did I read it entirely, I also searched it on the Google and on the Radio Reference search engine looking for the answer before I posted. How often can you say that?

If I am 100% sure of the answer, I don't have to search :D


You felt the need to post when you admitted you had no idea what he was talking about, seems rather funny to me :lol:

It's funny that I want to learn the things I don't know? Perhaps that concept is foreign to someone who is here to talk more than to learn, but if I wasn't interested in learning, I wouldn't ask questions.
