    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.

I recently was asked a question by someone who now has a Minitor V fire pager. They heard that there is a way to modify the pager to make it 'stored voice'. Is this a factory setting or is it something that can be set up after the fact?

The ability to store message comes right from the factory, it just depends on how the pager was configured when it was programmed.

I am no programming person but I have that pager. Well I have had 3 of them in the past 3 mouths. I had a monitor II for 10 Years NO PROBLEMS EVER!
My Pager has the Voice Rec. and when it goes off for our calls it has SQUELCH Until the dispatch center keys the radio up! At 2am it is not a JOY! I have complained to our pager person and they said the Rec. won't work if its not set up like that. so maybe thats why its not set up to Record?

The Minitor V can be purchased with voice memory or without. The programmer will not provide voice memory if the pager was originally purchsed without this option.

As for the squelch operation you have a few choices (in the programmer). You need to be aware that the voice record (start / stop) function in the pager is tied to the squelch and the alert function. Other words the pager will start recording immediately after the alerting period and will end recording on the next carrier drop after recording began.

The concern is if your system drops carrier after tones are sent and before the voice traffic is sent. In this case the pager should be programmed using one of the "audio functions"which has an N factor. (Revert N or Auto N). This allows the pager to ride thru the first carrier drop and not miss recording the voice message. Otherwise after the alert the pager will begin recording and when the carrier drops (before the message is sent) the pager will stop recording.
