You can only program that pager for general alerts. It won't handle the SAME codes. That said, use a Group tone of 1050 hz. You won't be able to scan two channels because NOAA is constant transmit.

Go to NOAA's website for info on SAME codes and other weather alert systems.

The instructions are not giving information on the tones settings

Does anyone on here know if the 1050 hertz tone should be put in position A or B and if the pager should be set to long tone C or Long time B

Uh, I thought I gave you that info when I said "use Group tone."

Group tone or code or call = Long C.

I must be mistaken.

Yes although I don't use that much since I get text alerts from several sources.

Have never tried it with a Minitor specifically, but I have a couple of Kenwood TK-270G's that I did this with. I set the "Group Call" to 1050 Hz. Works good, except the Kenwoods don't have the full alarm tone, just a little chirp sound, so it's easy to miss.
