Would like codes for the area of 56573


If you need a S.A.M.E. code, NOAA does these by county.

The zip code of 56573 is part of the county of Otter Tail, Minnesota, assuming no typing errors are involved. Thus the S.A.M.E. code is 027111 . Several transmitters cover this region 162.400 (channel 1), 162.500 (channel 5), 162.550 (channel 7), and 162.525 (channel 6) . However, the best transmitter choice is probably Channel 5 (162.500 WNG680) from Fergus Falls. The second best choice for Perham, MN is Channel 1 (162.400 Detroit Lakes WXM64 but it is a low power transmitter). See the link to the coverage map below.

All S.A.M.E. codes are available here: http://www.weather.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm . Click on your State and then look for your county. The Minnesota S.A.M.E. codes are listed here: http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrMN.htm . To see the coverage zones for each of the transmitters, see http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/PHP/minnesota.php (the link to the coverage map is also on the County S.A.M.E. code list page on the left hand side of the page.

Otter Tail is a large county and none of the transmitters seem to cover every inch. So you will need to try your weather radio and see which transmitter gives you the best reception of tests, watches and warnings.

I hope this helps.

(who has several weather radios in the house. They are in different areas and set to receive different transmitters. I live near a county line and the signal strength depends on where in the house you are. We tried using an external antenna. We received the signal from a transmitter from another state at the desired frequency and didn't receive the local warnings.)

Need weather codes for Paducah Kentucky


Do you mean the S.A.M.E. codes for NOAA weather radios?

The codes are county-wide so you need the code for McCracken County. The S.A.M.E. code to enter into your radio is 021145. The recommended transmitter is in Mayfield at 162.475 MHz (channel 4 when programming most weather radios). For other NOAA S.A.M.E. codes see http://www.weather.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm . The codes are listed by state and then by county. If you look at the coverage map (see the links on the left hand side of the page), you can look at the transmitter coverage area to find alternative transmitters to use if the Mayfield one is down.

I hope this helps.

I have had my radio for a while and now just out of the blue the weather band stopped recieving or something, the rest works fine the wx led even lights up just no audio


If there is static noise, then it's probably not the weather board. We have had something like this happen in our area....

The closest weather station to here up and quit transmitting. The transmitter died after years of use. So all of a sudden there was not weather station. It was out for months.

If there is no noise at all, then there is probably something wrong with the weather board. I don't mess too much with weather boards my self. You could look at the weather channel selection knob and look and make sure all the wires are connected, also the switch to turn on weather.

Solution #1
Some counties have two frequency channels. check this URL address to see if you have another frequency channel for your area- http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm. 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.

Need instructions to reset my Midland weather alert radio. Time and channel for Amarilli, TX.


On the Midland Weather Radio WR-100 web page of this website, scroll down until you get to the "Manual" heading. There is a link there (WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio Manual); click it and your instructions manual will come up in a .pdf format. To get the frequency channel for Amarillo, go to this website- http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrTX.htm. I do not know what county you live, so you will have to look at every county listing that has your city name in its group. When you find the information you need, insert it into your radio.

HOW DO YOU GET THE WEATHER CHANNEL ON WALKIE TALKIE?


Your radio must have VHF capability, as weather channels are VHF. Then your radio must be programmable to the weather channel for your desired area. If you repost a question including your Motorola radio name/model, we could be more specific.

I have a motorolla jt100 with no sound


Since you are receiving the weather (Wx) channel, the radio appears to be receiving fine. It might be that your fire frequencies are not programmed into the radio. Check your programming, as well as checking your scan list. The Wx channel should not be included in the scan list, as there is constant radio traffic on this frequency, and your radio would get stuck there during the scan process.
