You have to program what is called a "SAME" code specific to your county. These weather radio SAME codes are available from the National Weather Service website. Look up your state, then your county - it will give you the 6 digit code for your country, AND what frequency if closest to you as well. You will want to delete the unused counties, which is the whole idea behind these radios - program ONLY the one or two counties CLOSEST to you. There is also a phone number for these codes. You can also email you local NWS office on their website for assistance. The 6 digit code made up of a 3 digit number for your state and the 3 digit number for your county, making it specific to your location. Let me know if you need more info. Regards.

How to delete a county in my midland WR120


The way I did it was to unplug the power supply and remove the batteries for a minute, this cleared all the settings. Put it all back together and then reset station.

My midland wr100 is going off for the wrong county, sometimes not for a county that isn't even programmed!!!


Press the menu button once until you see "TIME", press the up arrow until you see "SAME SET", press select, you should have "SINGLE" selected if you are only wanting to get alarms on one SAME code. Press "SELECT" the screen should go to SAME 01, press select again and confirm that you have the correct SAME code entered. "MULTIPLE" will allow for more than one SAME code to alert and "ANY" will set the unit off for any SAME code alert.

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 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.

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.
