Hello, I am Brad Dye. Welcome to my homepage — THE PAGING INFORMATION RESOURCE — a collection of articles about Radio Paging, Wireless Messaging, and Wireless Data communications.
If you are involved in Wireless Messaging. Paging, or Wireless Telemetry, you will find many items of interest on this web site. Recommended wireless products and services can be located by clicking on the PRODUCTS button above. Come on in and browse around. There are over 10,000 files on this site. I hope you find it interesting and helpful. The good stuff about Wireless Messaging, Telemetry, and Paging is in the MAIN TOPICS section.
A new issue of the Wireless Messaging News gets posted on the web each week. A notification goes out by e-mail to subscribers on most Fridays around noon central-US time. The notification message has a link to the newsletter on the Internet.
There is no charge for subscription and there are no membership restrictions. The newsletter is supported by advertising. Readers are a very select group of wireless industry professionals, and include the senior managers of many of the world's major paging and wireless data companies. There is an even mix of operations managers, marketing people, and engineers, so I try to include items of interest to all three groups.
This newsletter is independent of any trade association.
It's all about staying up-to-date with business trends and technology. If you would like to subscribe just fill in the following blanks and then click on “Subscribe.”

Preferred Wireless is a Missouri corporation in good standing since 1995. Personally I have been in the wireless industry since 1982. Originally working at Quintron and then with regional and national paging carriers until I made the leap into entrepreneurship in 1995. We began as a pager repair facility but quickly grew to a paging provider and equipment reseller.
We are currently an Authorized Dealer and Service Center for Sprint's wireless and wireline products. We also continue to buy, sell and broker pre-owned paging infrastructure equipment. We have earned a reputation of honesty and integrity. If we claim a piece of equipment works, it will or we will make it right you have my word on it.
We would enjoy the opportunity to help you sell excess equipment or assist you in finding what you need.
Brad Dye, Ron Mercer, Allan Angus, Vic Jackson, and Ira Wiesenfeld are friends and colleagues who work both together and independently, on wireline and wireless communications projects. Click here for a summary of their qualifications and experience. Each one has unique abilities. We would be happy to help you with a project, and maybe save you some time and money.
Alarm and Control
I work in the radio paging industry. Some of the information included on these pages is personal about my hobbies and family for example and some of it is professional. A lot of it is made up of papers about Radio Paging that I wrote several years ago while working for Motorola. I add new information about once a week and occasionally throw away things that are no longer of interest. All of the information here is in the public domain and you are free to use it as you wish. Of course, neither I, nor my former employers, accept any responsibility for its accuracy. I can't guarantee that you will become rich and famous if you follow my advicesome do and some don't. The ideas and opinions expressed here are my own, except for those papers obviously written by others. This site is a community effort.
I am involved in promoting the worldwide use of pagers, both one-way and two-way, and paging on the Internet, so if you would like to share any ideas you have about new and innovative applications, please send them to me. I am very sorry, but due to the large volume of e-mail that I receive, I cannot respond to all the requests for more information on paging. I get a lot of very interesting messages, especially from students from all over the world. Several have asked for help in writing papers at school. As much as I would like to, time just doesn't permit. Thank you for visiting my web site.

If you have any wireless equipment that you would like to buy or sell, please let me know. I don't charge individuals for listing something for sale. If a sale is made through this newsletter, I ask the seller to send me a 10% commission, much the same as the voluntary payments that are requested on the Internet for shareware. There is no cost to the buyer.
There is a charge for companies wanting to put their products in the newsletter and on my web site. There is no obligation for payment of a commission for this kind of basic advertising. I would be very pleased, however, to get involved in the sales process as a manufacturer representative—for quality wireless products and reputable companies.
