Angry Minitor III Issue

Ive gone through multiple minitor 3's and I am now realizing that something is wrong. Initally i had a minitor 3 that I was reprogramming atleast 2 times a month. After a while it was constantly squelching when on open scan(C Switch). After a while i relized that this was would only happen on channel 1. No matter what the frequency was. Now that pager no longer even receives anything. I bought another one and again the same thing happened except it skipped right to the not receiving anything stage. I am starting to think it is my programming cradle, how everwhen i read the codeplug from the pager, it comes back the same way I put it in. Anyone have ANY ideas including obvious ones that I may be over looking.

check the squelch level on the pager. Even then, if you are near a wireless router that thing is going to go crazy.

nrembis said it right, the Minitor III was a bad pager. Motorola had a recall to "fix" the problem, but I don't think they ever did solve the problem. They fixed it by coming out with the IV.
