anybody else know.
mine works when it wants to, i rely on my radio for the most part except for when im asleep or working.
dont know what band its on, and it does weird stuff
Need much more detail. Range is dependent on (among other things):
1. The power radiated at the transmitter
2. The frequency
3. The terrain and vegetation between the transmitter and receiver (the pager)
Minitor can be programmed to operate in the VHF or UHF range, which means with the exception of some occasional atmospheric strangeness, they are line of sight. This can be determined once you know the height of the antenna:
range in miles = square root of (1.5 * antenna height in feet)
I have had mine opperate from 40miles as a crow flies. It really depends how far away from the repeater, the power output, the frequency, etc...
