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.)

How to find correct county


A. First, determine the counties you are interested in. Then do one of the following
three steps to get the codes:

1. The National Weather Service Toll-Free Number provides S.A.M.E.
County Codes at: 1-888-NWS-S.A.M.E or (1-888-697-7263)
This is what to expect when you call the NWS number. When you call the NWS
toll-free number, automated instructions will guide you to the S.A.M.E. County
Code(s) you need. The number will be six digits long.
• You will hear, "Welcome to the National Weather Service. You have
reached the Specific Area Message Encoding Program Service."
• If you select "touch-tone" to make your entries, you will be prompted to
enter the name of your state using the telephone keypad.
• Next you will be prompted to enter your county name.
• Then you will hear, "Your geographic code is xxxxxx." (This is your
S.A.M.E. County Code.) Be sure to write it down for future reference.
The system will then give you the option to enter "another combination": This
enables you to get additional S.A.M.E. Codes for surrounding counties.

2. The Internet Web Site of National Weather Servicewww.
nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.
This is what to expect when you go to the website.
• The link above takes you directly to the list of states.
• Click on (your state).
• Find your county, and record the "S.A.M.E. #" (the S.A.M.E. County
Code) that is listed to the right of your county, and for any other counties
in which you are interested.
WR-100 Owner's Manual
Page 8 www.midlandradio.com

3. Go to the Midland Radio Corporation website at www.midlandradio.com
• Click on the weather radio link at the top of the page.
• At the top of the weather radio page will be the link to the NWS list of
states and corresponding county codes. Click on the link.
• Click on your state and a list of counties and codes will be listed. Locate
your county and then find your code.

To set the country follow the below steps:

A Single S.A.M.E. County Code:

Press "MENU" button to open menu options.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through menu options until "S.A.M.E.
SET" is displayed, then press "SELECT" button.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through: "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or
"ANY."
• Display "SINGLE", then press "SELECT." "S.A.M.E.01" will be displayed.
(Note if you are programming a single S.A.M.E. County Code, only the
"01" setting will be used.) Press "SELECT".
• Using the "UP" arrow, find the first digit of your S.A.M.E. County Code.
Press the "RIGHT" arrow to save the digit and automatically
advance to the next digit.
• Program all digits of your S.A.M.E. County Code in the same way.
• Press "SELECT" to store your S.A.M.E. County Code. Press "MENU"
to close the programming menu.
Helpful Tip: The S.A.M.E. code is created using the following method:
• The first digit is the subcounty code-currently 0 in most areas.
• The second two digits represent the state code.
• The last three digits represent the county code.


Multiple S.A.M.E. County Codes:

Press "MENU" button to open menu options.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through menu options until "S.A.M.E.
SET" is displayed, then press "SELECT" button.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through: "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or
"ANY."
• Display "MULTIPLE" as explained, then press "SELECT".
"S.A.M.E.01" will be displayed, indicating you will be programming your first
S.A.M.E. County Code at weather radio menu location "01."
• After programming your first S.A.M.E. County Code, press "SELECT" then
the "UP" arrow to advance to "S.A.M.E. 02." Program all of your S.A.M.E.
County Codes in the same way as above.
• When finished entering all your codes, press "MENU" to
close the programming menu.

Hope that helps.

Regards

Anand

April 4, 2011 a tornado knocked out the transmitter tower for my county, Dickson, TN ...I need a new same code and frequency for my alarm.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. Thank you for taking the time to read this solution post. You are asking for the frequency channel and S.A.M.E code for Dickson County, Tennessee? Well you have come to the right place. I am going to give you the website where you can obtain this information.

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

Use the scroll down button to move to the Ds', as this is where your county will be listed. This website will give you all the information you need to program into your radio. The website also lists the areas that have DEGRADED transmitter towers. The town of Clarksville was one of those areas. Your county is one of the luckier counties as your county has more than one transmitter tower.I would advise you to choose another frequency channel in your county nearest your city, other than the one in Clarksville. Hope you didn't receive to much damage in your county. My state (North Carolina) and surrounding areas, received a series of tornadoes recently which caused property damage, injuries and even fatalities. I had my Midland Weather Radio on and it alerted about 3 Tornado Warnings and 2 Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in my area. These things will come in handy especially around Severe Weather Season. Once again, thanks for reading this solution and choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for all of your problems! Come back and visit us again as we'll do are absolute best to solve your problems. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this.

Whenever I press the weather/snooze all I get is a constant tone, no voice


First, make sure you have a battery installed, and then run it off of the wall adapter. Extend the telescopic antenna all the way out. Go to MENU and then select the local channel for your county (channels 1-7 - use whatever channel is strongest). Once you select the correct channel, then hit the MENU button again, and then you should hear weather forecasts. Press the VOL UP or DOWN buttons to get the right volume for you. If you get to the 'CHANNEL' selection and still have a tone, then you have a defective radio that you will need to exchange. Good luck - let me know if you get it working okay. Happy New Year!

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- 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.

What you want to do is set your radio to the proper S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Message Encoding) code for your county. You will find this information on the NOAA website which can be found at www.weather.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm. Find your state and it will list S.A.M.E. numbers by county.

Setting the code:
1. Push the CNTY/CH button on your radio. 4th button from the top /2nd up from bottom. This will prompt you to set the county.
2. Push the SET button. Button at bottom right. This will prompt the screen to show a set of 6 numbers flashing with the first number.
3. Under the screen you will see a set of 5 numbers and a 5+ with its corresponding button underneath. Use these for setting the code. For numbers above 5 use the 5+ button (e.g. 7 = 5+2). You will be able to set your radio for 10 different S.A.M.E. if needed. To do this you scroll through each S.A.M.E. number by pushing the CNTY/CH button.
4. After you set the S.A.M.E. number, push SET again to prompt you for the proper channel. The channels are A - G. You will want to have your radio on for this to be able to find the clearest channel. Turn your radio on and push the NOAA button under the screen. Push the CNTY/CH button till you get prompted for the SET CHANNEL. Push the SET button and the channel will blink. To scroll through use the TUN- OR TUN+ buttons and find the clearest channel.

You should be all set! Hope this was helpful.
