The Community Messenger
The Community Messenger is a state of the art communication
tool that is capable of changing the way America conveys information
between people and groups of people. Your Community
Messenger brings you specific messages in text form, with an
audio alert for group messaging such as your church and school. It
can give you the ability to select information about traffic and
news. It can let you know of impending danger (tornado, flood,
storm, fire, poison, etc.). It can also do traditional paging. It uses
your hometown FM radio station to deliver the data to you on
your DataFM radio. You can read more about this on DataFM’s
home page, www.datafm.com. The DataFM Community Messen-ger
does not continually provide you with alerts that have no affect
on you, since messages can be demographically and geographically
directed toward you or your group.
How do I make it work?
There are only two things you have to do to make the unit work.
You must tune the unit to the “Home Radio Station”. For details
see page 14. You must also be certain that you have a good signal.
For details see page 8.
Most of the functions mentioned in this manual work automatically
once you tune to your “Home Radio Station”. It is only when
you need to tailor the radio to meet your individual needs that you
must begin special programming functions. These tailoring func-tions
are simple but even simple tasks when first performed seem
complicated. We have made the unit as user friendly as we know
how. Please read the manual and if you have any questions, we have
on-line help at http://www.datafm.com. E-mail us at
CM@catt.com and we will do our best to answer any questions
you may have. Also, if you should have any suggestions about how
we can make the manual easier to read or use, please send your
suggestions to us at the above e-mail address.
