When at CPE this week, one of the friendly dealers near us said they did some extensive testing and feel they 6's are at least 3dB less sensitive.

Then when at IWCE, looking at random stuff a competitive pager maker made a similar remark and that was without me giving my opinion of reduced sensitivity. He said in their testing the Min 5 would receive at -115 and they would occasionally see some as low as -118. He then stated the Min 6's that he tested all were around -109 to -110 for RX.

Motorola FSB10884 - Just posted on MOL acknowledges VHF sensitivity issue and that engineering is working on a fix.

BULLETIN TYPE: Informational Only

SUBJECT: Minitor VI Pager - static/noise heard on receipt of page or a page may be missed completely under certain low RF signal conditions.


Users may report static/noise heard on receipt of page or a page may be missed completely under certain low RF signal conditions.

Use of the pager in a charger amplifier base (RLN6506A) and VHF Antenna (RLN6507A) will improve the Minitor VI performance under low RF signal conditions.

Under investigation by engineering

Motorola Solutions, Inc. is working diligently to understand the root cause and provide a resolution to this problem.
No date for resolution is available at this time.

• This bulletin will be updated and reissued after the solution is identified and available.

• Expected availability for a resolution is currently for the end of July 2014.

Please contact the Motorola Solution, Inc. System Support Center (SSC) at 1-800-221-7144 (1-302-444-9800) to open a technical support case if experiencing the above symptoms.
