Minitor II tones

http://www.panix.com/clay/ham/pl.html, http://www.batlabs.com/minitor.html. These tones are what activate or "open up" the Minitor II pager. The below frequencies activate the pagers assigned to SMVFD firefighters. Each tone is approximately 1 second long. The dispatcher will key up, send these two tones, then send a warble or multi-tone, a set of short beeps then the voice message advising us of the incident. The warble (repeated two-tone high-low) is an All-Call. That means multiple fire stations will dispatched to the incident.
