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.

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.

I have a Radio Shack Pro 96 scanner -can't get south medic band

Hi. Radio Shack is good for a lot of things. Frequencies are not one of them. Go to the site below and you will find ACCURATE frequencies or "codes" as you refer to them. As far as programming that particular radio I would have to have it in my hands to program it. Good luck.
