CAMPUS PAGER
The Campus Pager can send ten different message codes (0-9) and address
up to 100 individual (system) pagers.
Attractive features of the Campus Pager system include:
• Nonvolatile memory—stores system and pager codes for over one year,
even if the power fails.
• Pager message memory—stores the last eight message codes and lets you
review them by pressing a button.
• “Page All” feature—sends a message to all pagers simultaneously.
• Center-loaded antenna—provides up to a maximum of two miles
transmitting range, depending on the conditions at the receiving site. You
can replace this antenna with an outdoor antenna for extended
transmittion range. One of your local consumer electronics stores might
carry an outdoor antenna. If you cannot locate a store that sells an
antenna, call for technical support.
• “Low Battery” alarm—shows when the pager’s battery level is low.
3.2 Tone Pager (FX801A)
The Tone Pager beeps 12 times every ten seconds. This process is repeated
three times and then the pager beeps once every 60 seconds. Pressing the
on/off button allows you to view old messages from newest to oldest. Two
FX801A pagers come with the FX800A; no pagers come with the FX810A (you
must order them separately).

CAMPUS PAGER
4. Installation
4.1 Positioning the Campus Pager
You can operate the Campus Pager from a flat surface such as a table,
counter, or shelf. Or, you can use the supplied wall-mount brackets to mount
it on a wall. Steel and concrete walls reduce the Campus Pager’s transmitting
range. If the Campus Pager is located in a concrete or steel building, and part
of the coverage area is located outside the structure, place the unit and
antenna close to a window.
To mount the Campus Pager on a wall, follow these steps:
1. Slide the wall-mount brackets into the 2 wall-mount sockets, as shown in
Figure 4-1.
Figure 4-1. Connecting wall-mount brackets.
15
CAMPUS PAGER
2. Insert the center-loaded antenna connector into the antenna jack on the
right side of the Campus Pager. Turn the connector clockwise until the
antenna locks in place. For maximum efficiency, extend the antenna to its
full length, orient it vertically, and keep it away from walls. See Figure 4-2.
Figure 4-2. Connecting the antenna to the Campus Pager.
3. Mark the positions for the two supplied mounting screws on the wall. The
positions should be 5-7/8” apart. Drill the two holes, then thread the two
screws into the wall. The screws should extend 1/5”. Do not over-tighten
the screws.
4. Align the keyholes on the back of the brackets with the two screws, then
push in and press down to secure the Campus Pager to the wall. See
Figure 4-3.
16
CAMPUS PAGER
Figure 4-3. Connecting the Campus Pager to the mounted screws.
You can use an outdoor base antenna in place of the supplied antenna to
increase the Campus Pager’s transmitting range. The PL259-type antenna jack
on the Campus Pager makes it easy to use with a variety of antennas.
WARNING
When installing or removing a base station antenna, use extreme
caution. If it starts to fall, let it go. It could contact overhead power lines.
If the antenna touches the power line, contact with the antenna, mast,
cable, or guy wires can cause electrocution and death. Call the power
company to remove the antenna. Do not attempt to do so yourself.
17
CAMPUS PAGER
4.2 Positioning the Antenna Ground Wire
For best transmission, fully extend the black antenna ground wire. Do not coil
this wire, as this will diminish the transmission efficiency.
4.3 Connecting Power to the Campus Pager
Plug the power cord into a standard AC outlet.
The Campus Pager does not operate when AC power fails, but it maintains
the system code in memory. (See Section 4.6.) Because the Campus Pager
maintains its memory through power failure, there is no need to reprogram
the unit when power is restored. The Campus Pager can maintain this code
for more than one year without power.
4.4 Installing/Replacing Pager Batteries
The individual pager is powered by two AAA batteries (not supplied). We
recommend that you use alkaline batteries to power the pager.
To install or replace the pager’s batteries, see Figure 4-4, and follow these
steps:
1. Slide the battery compartment door open.
2. Insert two fresh alkaline batteries as indicated by the polarity symbols (+
and -) marked inside the compartment.
3. Slide the battery compartment door closed.

The pager will notify you when the batteries are getting low, by displaying
“b” on the pager’s LED when you press the pager’s ON/OFF switch. It will
also notify you by beeping once every fifteen seconds.
The pager also maintains memory during a power loss, so you do not need
to re-enter its pager code (see Section 5.3).

CAMPUS PAGER
5. Using the Campus Pager
This section contains operating notes for using the Campus Pager. Read these
notes before attempting to operate the system.
5.1 Overview
Before operating the Campus Pager, be sure that you understand the
following information concerning the paging system’s capabilities.
The Campus Pager covers a maximum range of up to two miles using the
supplied center-loaded antenna.
This distance is based on average conditions over a line-of-sight path. This
range may be less, depending on surrounding conditions. The Campus Pager
sends a number (from 0-9) to one or all of the pagers. The pagers in turn
beep and display the numbered message. Each pager has a label where you
can write down the message you’ve established for each number. We
recommend that you use a pencil, so the number can be easily changed at a
later date.
Each pager has its own pager code, which allows the Campus Pager to send
a message to a single pager, or to ALL of your system’s pagers using the
TRANSMIT ALL feature. You can record each of the pager codes, and their
corresponding users on the card located under the Campus Pager. (The card
is inside the bottom of the unit and must be pulled out from the front.) You
can also write down the messages represented by each message code. Again,
we recommend that you use a pencil, so the number can be easily changed at
a later date.
5.2 Storing the System Code
Before you can use the Campus Pager, you must designate a system code. The
system code ensures proper signaling between the Campus Pager and the
pager.
To enter and store a system code, follow these steps:
1. Turn the Campus Pager power on.
20
CAMPUS PAGER
2. Turn the Campus Pager over and locate the system code button, which is
inside the hole labeled SYSTEM CODE. Insert a pointed object such as a
straightened paper clip and press the button (see Figure 5-5). The
TRANSMIT display will show the previous system code for about one
second, then shows ___.
Figure 5-1. The Campus Pager system code button.
3. Enter a three-digit system code. After about one second, the display shows
___, and the system code is stored.
4. If you enter a wrong code, reset it by pressing A/C, CANCEL, or the
system code button. Then repeat Steps 2 and 3 to store the system code
again.
NOTE
If your application requires more than 100 system pagers, you can use
multiple Campus Pager systems. If using more than one Campus Pager,
each system should have a unique system code.
21
CAMPUS PAGER
5.3 Storing the Pager Code
Before you can use the Tone Pager or Vibrating/Tone Pager, you must
designate a pager code for each of the pagers.
NOTE
You must reset all pager codes when you enter a new system code.
To enter and save a pager code, follow these steps:
1. Turn the pager OFF.
2. Press and hold the ON/OFF switch, then slide it to the ON position (see
ON OFF
Figure 5-2. Pager ON/OFF Switch.
22
CAMPUS PAGER
3. Make sure that the Campus Pager is turned ON, then enter a two-digit
pager code (00-99) and then 0.
4. Press the TRANSMIT button on the Campus Pager, and the unit will
transmit the pager code to the pager. The pager will beep four times, and
flash “L” on its display four times. The pager then beeps 12 times and
simultaneously flashes 0 on its display to confirm that it received the
message code 0.
NOTE
For example, if you would like the pager to have a new pager code such
as 38, enter 380, and press TRANSMIT.
After you press the TRANSMIT button, the Campus Pager LED flashes the
three digits seven times, and simultaneously transmits the pager code to the
pager. The three digits will stay lit until you perform one of the following
actions:
• Turn the Campus Pager OFF
• Press A/C or CANCEL
• Transmit a message to a pager
Perform the preceding steps for each pager used with the Campus Pager.
NOTE
If the pager does not successfully store the pager code, repeat the
preceding steps.
5.4 Transmitting a Message Code to a Single Pager
1. Turn the Campus Pager power ON.
2. Press A/C or CANCEL if the display shows unwanted pager or message
codes.
3. Enter the two-digit code for the pager you want to receive the message,
then the one digit message code that you want to send. If you enter the
wrong pager or message code, press A/C or CANCEL, then re-enter the
correct codes.
23
CAMPUS PAGER
NOTE
You cannot reset either of these codes after you press the TRANSMIT
button.
4. Press the TRANSMIT button. The TRANSMIT display lights during
transmission, and the pager’s display flashes the message code number
seven times. The three digits will remain lit until you perform one of the
following actions:
• Turn the Campus Pager OFF
• Press A/C or CANCEL
• Transmit a message to a pager
If desired, press TRANSMIT again to re-send the current message code to
the pager.
5. Press A/C or CANCEL, then repeat Steps 3 and 4 if you want to transmit
another message code to another pager.
5.5 Transmitting a Message Code to All System Pagers
1. Turn the Campus Pager power ON.
2. Press A/C or CANCEL if the display shows unwanted pager or message
codes.
3. Press ALL, then the one digit message codes that you would like to send.
If you enter the wrong message code, press A/C or CANCEL, then reenter the correct code.
NOTE
You cannot reset the message code after you press the TRANSMIT
button.
4. Press the TRANSMIT button. The TRANSMIT display lights during
transmission, and the pager’s display flashes the message code number.
See Section 5.6. If desired, press TRANSMIT again to re-send the current
message code.
5. Press A/C or CANCEL, then repeat Steps 3 and 4 if you want to transmit
another message code.
24
CAMPUS PAGER
5.6 Receiving a Message Code with the Tone Pager
When a Tone Pager is turned ON and receives a page, it sounds 12 beeps and
flashes the received message code on its display, unless you press the
ON/OFF button to silence the pager before it finishes beeping. The 12 beeps
and message code display repeat about 10 seconds later. Press ON/OFF to
silence the pager when it beeps again, or the pager beeps once about every 60
seconds to remind you that there is a new call.
Press ON/OFF to stop the pager from beeping every 60 seconds.
If the message code is transmitted to all pagers, each pager repeats the 12
beeps three times at about 30 second intervals. Press ON/OFF to silence the
pager.
5.7 Receiving a Message Code with the Vibrating/Tone Pager
When a Vibrating/Tone Pager is turned ON and receives a page, it vibrates
once and flashes the received message code on its display, unless you press
the ON/OFF button to silence the pager before it vibrates. The pager beeps
once every 60 seconds and allows you to view old messages from newest to
oldest by pushing the on/off button.
Each pager has its own pager code, which allows the system to send a
message to a single pager, or to all of your system’s pagers using the
TRANSMIT ALL feature. You can record each of the pager codes, and their
corresponding users on the card located under the base unit.
5.8 Reviewing Stored Message Codes
The pager can store eight message codes. Repeatedly press ON/OFF to view
the stored message codes on by one, from newest to oldest. A “-” indicates the
end of the stored message codes.
When the memory is full and a new message is received, the oldest message
code is deleted from memory.
If a newly received message code is identical to the last message received, it
is not stored.
All stored message codes are erased when you turn the pager OFF.
