they really should add a function where when the tones are activated it could switch over to a trunking system. I think this could be done easily by making the pager change zones when the tones are triggered. this way the knob position would not be effected by switching modes. then when the incident is over you can put the pager back to zone 1 and it would be back to the vhf scan and ready to be triggered again. Maybe someone over at Unication can give some insight? Would be a very useful ability of the pager and would possibly persuade departments to get G5 pagers. I know my department wants to get them for the inevitable switch to 800 paging. However for now we only use G1 pagers.
This is a little much considering users are still waiting for more easily built features such as talkgroup hold or nuisance delete. The pager has the ability to decode paging on a P25 talkgroup which would be easier to implement at the system level.
