-- Paging Left and Right Lane Predictions with RaceLog Pro 3 --
One of the things that RaceLog Pro 3 and our new Paging System allows you to do, is to page both Left and Right Lane Predictions. Also, you may page more than one vehicle on the same pager. Each pager unit has 2 capcodes, one for your Personal Mail Folder and one for your Maildrop Folder. Once RaceLog Pro has been installed to your hard drive and registered, you may have multiple copies of the program on the same drive, all running at the same time. Here are the steps required to set up your system to page multiple lane or multiple vehicle predictions to one pager:

This is easy, so don't get lost, okay? Here we go:

1. Make a new folder on your hard drive and call it whatever you like. Then copy these files from the RaceLog Pro 3 folder into the new one:

RaceLogPro3.exe
User.ini
Pro2.exe
RDTF.exe
Bob98.mdb

You can then create a new Shortcut to the RaceLogPro3.exe file in the new folder. The new shortcut and program in this folder will be used for the other lane or another vehicle.

2. Run the new RaceLogPro program in your new folder. Open the Database that you created for your car previously that is located in the C:\RaceLog Pro 3 folder. Next, change the Pager to "Pager 2". Close the program.

3. In PageAire Pro, enter your Mail Drop CapCode (the higher number capcode) under "Pager 2". Set Destination 2 to the new folder that you created in Step 1. Close the program.

Now the setup for both lanes is complete. This is how to start the paging:

1. Start PageAire Pro as usual.

2. Start the original copy of RaceLog Pro 3 as usual.

3. Open the ET Predictor and start paging to Pager 1 as usual.

4. For the other lane or another vehicle, then start the new copy of RaceLog Pro 3, select the base run for the other lane/vehicle, and begin paging to Pager 2.

That's it! Did I lose you?

-- Do You Expect That Thing to Work Here? --
When I arrived at Englishtown, NJ for the NHRA national event there, I got out my pager and rode around on the scooter checking my signal. Our paging transmitter has a range of a one (1) mile radius without an external antenna! So, I was very surprised when several racers stopped me and asked, "Do you expect that thing to work here?" Apparently, some of the higher dollar systems out there do not work very well. It's a shame when bad quality stuff ruins the reputation of a perfectly good idea. All of our paging systems work, not at just some tracks, but at every track. We guarantee it.
