• 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:

Minitor pager question

Unless the departments are using the same tones, it won't work with a Minitor II.

A Minitor V will do 8 pairs of different frequencies and you don't have to track down the reeds.

A minitor II would need to get new crystals and new tone reeds and then needs to be retuned. The minitor III, IV, & V can be reprogrammed via computer.

landonjensen did not express this well, but based on his other posts on this subject, he is only interested in listening to one of departments being dispatched, so just monitoring the channel isn't what he is after, hence why he was looking at a pager. He is aware of the options of using one of the newer Uniden scanner models, but I suspect that he finds it silly (like me) to turn an expensive scanner into a pager on a 24/7 basis.

landonjensen, if I have made an error above (in my expansion of your post) please feel free to tell it like it is. ;)
