Manually tune to a station and hold a knob until it beeps. Do the same for all presets.

Solution for the stability problem

GE and RCA SR-3 production suffers from an ill-advised change in tuning potentiometer. It causes the tuning to be unstable - the radio is almost unusable due to difficulty in tuning to stations and the radio has difficulty staying on stations.

The value of the pot is a bit unusual - 300k. I have found that a 500k pot, with 470 fixed resistors across each leg (low to middle, middle to high) allows the radio to tune the entire AM and FM bands, although dial calibration is really bad. The tuning voltage high and low pots will need to be adjusted at the very least, and the whole front end will probably need re-alignment.

I have modified at least a half a dozen of these radios this way, Fry's has an appropriate pot but the shaft is aluminum and needs to be machined. The radios are as stable as early production SR-3's, and are fine DX units.

The FM section can also benefit greatly from the narrow ceramic filter modification. I can routinely use the radio for stations over 100 miles away after the modification.

Wont stop on a station when search button is pressed

The autosearch feature stops on stations based on a preset threshold for radio station signal strength.

If your radio has done this on both AM and FM from when it was new, it is probably an internal problem with the circuit board electronics or possibly because you are in an area where strong signals are absent (such as a rural area or inside a building that interferes with signals).

If the radio won't stop searching at all, the 'Search' button' may be stuck.

If you find that your radio is skipping stations only on FM, it may be a defective or broken external antenna or, again, maybe you are in an area where strong signals are absent (such as a rural area or inside a building that interferes with signals).

Hope this helped.

When I press Weather/Snooze the radio emitts a high pitch sound like a whistling. I have the radio set to voice, I have verified the channel 162.4750 for my area. I have a scanner tuned to that same...

Solution #1
Some counties have two frequency channels. check this URL address to see if you have another frequency channel for your area- If you do, try the other frequency channel for your area.

Solution #2
You may be receiving a poor reception quality because of where the radio is located or the antenna's positioning. First play with the antenna until you get a better reception. If this doesn't help, try moving it to a location near a window or outside room. If this doesn't help, you may have to buy an external antenna from an electronics store and hook it up to your radio. If you still have your WR-100 Owner's Manual, they have a page in there for reception (page 12), and it lists in there their suggested weather radio antenna.

Solution #3
It may not be anything you've done at all. It could be the weather station's transmitter itself. May you should call your local NWS office and plea your case to them.

Tuning of dab radio

Planet rock is quite a small networking station and its outgoing signal is not all that good. Some personal radios simply just havent been made good enough to find a station with such low radio waves. You may just need to buy another or findout over the net the signal of planet rock or weather they've closed down or not.

How to pre set satitions

Your Sony is equiped for 5 AM presets and 15 FM presets.

1. Power your unit "ON".
2. Set the desired band - AM or FM.
3. Hold the "Mode" button down no more than one second. The "preset" indication just be gone.
4. Manually tune in the desired station you want to preset.
5. Hold "Enter" until preset indication re-appears. The number of the preset should be blinking.
6. Using the tuning buttons, change the the number to your desired "preset" number.
7. Push the "Enter" button to set the preset.

Remember, you can't have more than 5 AM presets (a mistake I made).
