    It's old....
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

        This is the kind I was given too. It gets the job done, eh? I doubt we could afford much better since the state cut our funding this year..

              From what I have been told by the Radio Shop we will not be able to use the older pagers when the transition to the 700mhz system is complete. The newer Motorola pagers will work, but not the IV and older. They are doing away with the patch between the old 154.445mhz\900mhz, and going with the 700mhz system only.

                  It has been known to make me almost go insane.

                  Ooops. Too late.

                    That is true the Minitor V is the only pager capable when the 2013 radio transition happens. Get in contact 911 coordinator about grants for the 2013 transition. We've applied so we can replace our old pagers and radios.

                      Does it go off when there is a call? If so, then it's fine.
                      It may not be the newest version but it gets the job done.

                      Many departments issue older equipment to their new members when they first join. An older pager, used gear, rubber boots..etc. We aren't going to buy new equipment for someone if we don't know if they're going to stick around. Once you get some time in, get through training, you may be issued newer items.

                      If you're new to the department there are probably more important things you should be focused on then pager envy (like TRAINING).

                        I think the Minitor II is better than both the 3 and 4.

                          I think you got screwed. This is clearly harassment and you should march right back in there and request, nay, DEMAND a brand new Minitor V, in box. If they don't give it to you, and new bunker gear too, I'd quit.

























                          Seriously, dude, it's a pager. If it goes off and talks, it's good....

You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

                            What's a monitor III? Motorola only makes the Minitor series.
                            Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                              I know my minitor 4 fits perfectly in the left leg pocket of a pair of carhardt jeans.
