Is it encoder or decoder ?  I thought they were Alpha decoder units ??  Seen a couple people call them encoder units ??

I was at work but beleive the first thing they did was unplug the Alpha unit. Maybe wrong cord? I also told them to try taking out the phone line as a temporary measure. Obviously we wouldn't want to leave either the unit unplugged or the phone line out overnight with staion unstaffed. Especially given that it's rare for a call to come through Alerts anymore. Although I'm sure we could utilise the old every member in the Brigade phone alert thing if we could remember how :-)

Ours went off just after 3 in the morning last year and have seen a few around the state go off between 3 and 4 in the morning, definitely not a coincidence

Several in our group have gone haywire at odd times... Something interesting we found with ours, is that if you transmit with a VHF radio within 1 metre of the Alpha decoder, it sends out response messages randomly... go figure :?

It would be GO's only because we've asked SHQ to send a page to our captain to be told that it can't be done.

No use at all MEDEVAC :wink: :lol:
