• 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:

Is there any way to program a motorola advisor gold (or any other alpha-numeric pager) to monitor any (1)
of the following Fire Departments: Benbrook, White Settlement, or Fort Worth? I would like to receive something like the dispatch ticket where it would tell me the address, incident type, etc. If this is possible I would like to know how to do it.
Thanks,

I already have IPN, I just want to receive a page every time that Benbrook or White Settlement Fire/EMS is dispatched. Is there any way to do this with some type of alpha-numeric pager?

Thanks,

Not without the pager company approving it, and programing the Cap Code into the unit. However, with a tapped scanner and certain software, you can watch that stuff. With the exception of Motorola Flex paging.

NO, you TAP the Scanner! then find the Data program that best suits your purpose which decodes the Frequency used by the pager.

Not sure Tom, Dallas has a Private paging system. I would have to guess Ft. Worth does too. But so much now is on Nextel, Crackberry and MDC. Only volunteer departments really use pagers still for fire tone out. Most urban tone out is on the TRS or on MDC1200 systems.

Lots of paid municipal and volunteer fire departments use commercial alphanumeric paging in addition to tone & voice dispatching and MDC CAD. Houston FD uses all 3. Problem is, decoding and monitoring commercial paging is illegal under ECPA statues, so you're not going to find much good info along the lines of "xxx department uses xxx paging service on xxx.xxxx with yyyyyy capcode."

never hurts to ask...

If you're couteous and polite, you might try going to the dept and asking (assuming you have correct alpha pager). If they have prog cap., it's just a few minutes in the prog. cradle and you're out the door.

You might be surprised ;-)
