Hey guys. I was looking into buying a fire pager (Minitor), and most recently have looked at ebay. I saw this deal for one, but I'm not sure if it's a reasonable price. Does anyone have any idea where I can get them cheap, or if Ebay is the best place to go? Thanks.

A guy I know had something similar in his house. It was set to go off when some tones of the correct pitch and length were recieved, the fire call was heard. Each company/station had their own tones. I imagine the pagers are similar.

Back in the day when I was a firefighter in charge of purchasing, I 50 Minitor III's for about $275 a piece with battery and charger. This model was a repeating pager with 2 channel scan ability and vibrating alert.
