Go to this site and choose the state you live in. Then select the county. And then select and enter the S.A.M.E. codes you desire.

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.)

Got a midland weather radio problem wr100 series. all county codes in and channel set. was working for awhile and now no alerts at all. keeps now saying check reception.


Turn your radio off and then on again. Then press the weather/snooze button. Do you hear the broadcast from your local transmitter? Check NOAA to make sure the station is broadcasting (not down for repairs). Try setting the radio to a different transmitter that covers your area.

You may need an external antenna for the radio (http://www.midlandradio.com/Weather-Radio-Accessories.BPE/18-259W ). Beware: when you use an external antenna, you may receive a broadcast from a different transmitter (farther away). In that case, the weather alerts for your county will likely not come in.

I hope this helps.

(we have two weather radios that are on full-time. The one set to a secondary transmitter does not receive the S.A.M.E. test signals or watches. (It can't be positioned to receive from the primary transmitter clearly.) It does receive warnings for the county correctly. The on/off routine has to be done every few weeks since it doesn't get the test signals. We tried an external antenna and kept getting transmitters from other states and missed tests, watches and warnings. Fortunately our main weather radio does get the primary transmitter and gets the tests, watches and warnings.)

Co.code for volusia co. fi.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution. Thank you for choosing FixYa to grant you request. You want the S.A.M.E code for Volusia County, Florida. Shown below will be the website that contains this information.

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

Your county is located near the bottom of the list. The county name is listed twice, but the S.A.M.E code is the same. The reason why the name is listed twice is because your county receives broadcasts on two frequency channels. This is good because if one transmitter tower goes out, you can switch to the other channel that's in your listening area. I hope you get good use out of your radio during this Severe Weather Season and that it keeps you safe and up-to-date.

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.

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.
