I don't know how to program the FRX3 so that it will sit silently until an emergency message triggers it with a tone signal or what ever they use.


Your best bet would be to obtain directions for setting up the radio. I have a Radio Shack one and it has operated very reliably although it can be unnerving to get a NOAA weather alert in the middle of the night

How do I turn off the alarm clock


Hello

The unit has 2 alarms (alarm 1 and 2). They can be used

together or independently. Alarms 1 and 2 have different

sounds so that you can differentiate them. The alarm will
sound for 1 minute unless it is disabled.

To set the alarm:

Navigate to "Set Alarm" setting mode as shown in the

Changing Settings section. The order of the settings is;
alarm 1 or 2, hour and minute.

To enable or disable the alarm:

• Press MENU until you reach alarm 1 or 2 display.

• Press [UP] or [DOWN] button to enable or disable the
alarm. "-:--" means disabled.
OK.

Just bought a Midland 100B Weather Radio. I programmed the channel and SAME Set. I am not receiving any alerts. We are having an alert right now, but it is not displaying the LEDs or the voice/siren is not...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to help solve this concern. You just purchased a Midland WR-100B All-Hazards Weather Radio. You have all the information programmed correctly in it and you are still not receiving any alerts. First of all, log on to this website and check to make sure that the transmitter tower in your area is still working (this means your county does not have a DEGRADED remark in its row).

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm

When you get to the website, select your state and you will see a list of all the counties in your state. Find your county and locate the REMARKS column. If your county has a remark stating "OUT OF SERVICE" or "DEGRADED", it means the tower transmitting broadcasts for your state is not working due to technical problems or recent severe weather conditions. If your county doesn't have one of these remarks beside it, then the reason why you are not receiving any alerts on your radio is because the National Weather Service has special criteria that a storm has to meet in order for them to alert NOAA Weather Radio owners "In the middle of the night or while doing daily activities". To translate that for you, they don't want to disturb anyone by sending alerts for storms that are not "life threatening" or going to cause severe damage. Click on the links below to find out more information about when alerts are broadcast.

http://www.weather.gov/os/eas_codes.shtml

http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm

NWR always runs Required Weekly Testing every Wednesday starting from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. If you are able to, check the radio then. If you see the amber light shine, then you are receiving a test. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrtest.htm is the place to find more information about NWR testing. I hope this will give you a better understanding of when the National Weather Service sends alerts to the viewing area. Thank you for choosing FixYa to as your one-stop solution spot for questions, concerns, problems and requests. Stay safe this Severe Weather Season and have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

I love my radio and she is always there for me..til just the other day..no warning lights..i cant get it to speak the weather ..yes even with the radio on..i can go thru the menu to get the alarm to test...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your problem is that your weather radio is not giving you updates and your warning lights are not coming on when there's a severe weather warning? I am first going to tell you to check your S.A.M.E code to make sure you have it programmed for your county. If this is correct, I don'there's anything wrong with your radio. I think, the problem might be your county/area's transmitter tower. If your county/area's transmitter tower is near one the states that have been recently attacked by tornadoes or severe weather, the transmitter tower may be out of service. You say you live in Georgia, so further in this explanation I will give you the NWS's (National Weather Service's) weather radio programming information website for your state. This will give you information for every county in your state including which transmitters are out of service if any. If the tower for your county is out of service, check a county that's near your area to see if their tower is out service. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/Maps/PHP/georgia.php gives you all the NWR stations in your state. Click on your county and it will show you a map of their broadcasting area. If it's not out of service, program that county's S.A.M.E code into your radio. You should also change the frequency channel to that same county as well.

http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrGA.htm

You may also want to check your antenna to make sure it's connected properly and fully extended. The National Weather Service has certain criteria that a storm must follow in order for them to sound the alarm. I assure you that the lights will come on when the radio is giving you a warning. To find out more information about this, log on to this website -http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm. I hope you get your radio back up and running as soon as possible. You can always go on the National Weather Service's website as well, to get weather updates for your area. I hope you are safe this Severe Weather Season and Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution.

I have midland wr-100 weather radio. radio is programed with right codes and channel numbers all i get is a high pitch tone coming out of the speaker


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. The problem is that you are hearing a high pitch tone coming from the speaker. First check to make sure the weather mode is on. To do this, switch the radio to the right side and make sure the Weather Radio On/Off switch is switched to On. You should also check the alarm to make sure it's not on and set. If the alarm is on, turn it off. Your alert type may also be a cause for this. If your alert type is set on TONE, try changing it to DISPLAY or VOICE. Reply back if you still receive problems. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a nice day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. Hope this helps and remember our site the next time you need troubleshooting assistance.

I bought my Midland WR-100 Weather Radio in 2008, from Walmart {Midwest City, OK}. They programmed it there, for Oklahoma County, and surounding Countys as well. It worked the 1st year, continuely as many...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night, depending on the time of day you are reading this. From what you are requesting here, you want weather alerts for only for Oklahoma County? Here are the steps for doing this.

  1. If you need the S.A.M.E code for Oklahoma County, type this URL address into your URL box (http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrOK.htm).
  2. Scroll down and find your county name and the S.A.M.E code will be located right beside it.
  3. Obtain your Weather Radio and press the MENU button.
  4. Use the directional up or down buttons until you see the word "SAME SET" on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  5. You will either see the words "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or "ANY" on your screen. When this is seen, press SELECT if you see "SINGLE". Use the directional up or down buttons (if "SINGLE" does not appear on your screen) until "SINGLE" is displayed on the screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  6. You will see the words SAME 01 on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  7. Using the directional up or down buttons, program the first number of the code in the blinking column. When finished, press the > (directional right) button as this will automatically save the number and advance you to the next column.
  8. Continue Step 7 until all numbers are programmed in the radio.
  9. When finished, press SELECT as this will store and automatically save your code.
  10. Press MENU to exit.
If you followed these steps correctly, your radio should now be programmed to respond to only one county. To set it to respond to multiple counties again, follow these steps, only this time instead of choosing "SINGLE" you will choose "MULTIPLE". The "alarm not stopping until it's turned off", is a normal function and should not be tampered with. Hope this will come in handy in the future, especially during Tornado Season, as you state is in the region known as "Tornado Alley". This radio will keep you notified, informed on what's happening weather-wise and could possibly save your life from Mother Nature's threats. Thank you for taking the time to request your problem, read and perform this solution. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop spot for finding solutions to your problems! Be safe this Tornado Season and have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are reading this.

My radio will not tell the weather aor sound an alarm


The NWS has specific criteria for sounding an alarm. You probably haven't experienced weather severe enough for the National Weather Service to sound the alarm. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm gives you an in-depth explanation of the procedures that occur when an alarm is sounded. It also gives you the certain events that must take place in order for them to sound an alarm.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.
