The Alpha Legend Dual is a 4-Line Alphanumeric Pager that can be programmed to automatically scan two operational frequencies or allow the user to change scanning modes. If programmed to automatically scan, the pager will detect which of the primary or secondary frequencies programmed into the pager is operational at that time and lock on to the active frequency. If the user is allowed to select the scan mode, either of the two frequencies can be manually selected or the pager can be set to auto scan. The Alpha Legend Dual pager has all the features and performance of the Alpha Elegant Dual pager, the difference being in the number of available capcode addresses. The Alpha Legend Dual has 16 capcode addresses and 64 sub-addresses while the Alpha Elegant Dual has half that number. The Legend Dual is fully synthesized, operates in the VHF, UHF, or 900 MHz frequency bands, has wideband channel spacing, and uses the POCSAG coding format.
