Default Radio Slaves question

I have two sets of radio slaves, one set that came with some strobes I bought and another set of cheap eBay models. Both work great...is it possible to rig these somehow so that all receivers will fire from the same transmitter? I would like to fire 5 receivers from one transmitter.

I have tried setting the DIP switches to all possible combinations but no luck.

If anyone has solution I would appreciate it if you could pass it on to me.

Thanks

I think you are SOL... unless they are designed to "talk" to each other they likely are not on the same frequency.
