Pagers, also known as beepers are small telecommunication devices that carry short messages. There are one-way pagers that can receive short messages or phone numbers or two-way pagers, that allow the user to send and receive e-mail, sms messages etc.
Paging works through a subscription service who pass on the messages to other pager subscribers.

Vertex 231 set to receive an alert tone will not trip while pagers set the same way do. They used to, 8 radios stopped performing properly within 1 1/2 months of each other


It is most likely the encoder. It sends the signal to make the radios act like pagers. Two tone radios and pagers use almost the same exact format for programming. Has anyone worked on the base station or encoder? That is where I would start. Do you have the Vertex software and cables? It could be called a timing setting. This may not be a simple fix. Is there a service shop nearby? We've worked on pagers over 30 years and VX 231's for 12 years. They simply do not stop working unless someone adjusted something.

Top five benefits of using a pager


Pagers may seem like a thing of the past in today's day and age of cell phones and instant messengers but there are some very distinct benefits to using pager systems over cell phones.

1. Pagers have a much wider reach than your traditional cell phone because they use satellites. This leads to their being less dead zones for pagers, they can also be strong enough to work in underground situations so you don't lose your signal when you get on the subway.

2. Pagers are used for medical professionals and emergency response teams because they are reliable and fast. When you attend an event with a few thousand people you will notice that your phones service will probably be down to no bars, but for the people with pagers they will have the same service they always have. These messages are also delivered fast because the people using them tend to be in professions that time is quite literally everything.

3. As cell phones continue to advance and add on more and more features. Pagers have been able to stay inexpensive and true to the task that they do. There are very few add ons or features that have been added to the pager since they have been in use so there is much less room for companies to overcharge the user.

4. Mass messaging from a cell phone can be very difficult and unreliable, but when it comes to paging a large number of units it can be as simple as making a single phone call. It is for this reason that emergency response teams use pagers because time is of the essence when it comes to assembling an emergency response team.

5. A little known fact about pagers is that they can be combined with various different technologies to be altered of a situation. Lets say that you are a factory manager you can connect a pager to the machine and be altered the instant something is not working properly.

Can you track the location of a one way pager using GPS?


No you can't because the pager only receives a signal and doesn't send anything out.

Notification when fax arrives


In the 90s, cell phone companies and pager companies use to provide a seperate phone number answered by a computer that you could dial with your computer modem which would page/text a specific device you specified.

Most cell phone companies no longer offer this service.

WinFax/TalkWorks can notify your pager or cellular phone (using SMS messaging) whenever new faxes or voice messages arrive.

WinFax/TalkWorks works with Tone Only, Numeric, Personalized Numeric, and Alphanumeric pagers. To use the pager notification feature, you must know:

1.the capabilities of your pager/cellular phone
2. the telephone numbers WinFax/TalkWorks must dial to connect to your service provider
3. your personal identification number (if your pager supports this feature)

Programing pager tone alerts


The scanner itself does not directly support decoding of pager tones, but if you know someone who can manage their way around a bit of soldering and hacking, they might be able to rig something up with an old pager which could be triggered from the audio output jack from the scanner.

PAGER


I know Radio Shack used to sell them (pagers), and the service was about $10 a month. It was just a plain numeric display, no-frills pager. Unfortunately, pagers are quickly become fazed out.

There is also a device called the "Firefly", which is a phone, but only dials out to "mom" or "dad" or 911, thus eliminating the chance of racking up a huge phone bill.

You can see it here:
