    who here still use a pager? ;f any of your engineer coworkers?
    when i was in high school, pager was a big deal. then in college, people still used pager although not as prevalent as in K12. i pioneered the first use of cell phone in my dorm too. ;f

    i have an old NEC pager from GTE. it's now used as an alarm clock. it's a cheap way to wake you up in the morning.

    My pagers are gone in favor of cellphones, although my current Nokia does have a "Pager" mode.

    I carry a Minitor IV 24-7. The FD prefers that I show up when someone has a fire :) Then again, I also carry a GP300.
