Can you wear J Crew's Italian Linen Herringbone blazer all year?


In short, no. Linen is typically considered a warm weather fabric and is best suited for Spring and Summer. The exceptions to this would be if you are going to be traveling to somewhere warm (think island or resort wear).

My turn signals don't work but the hazzards flash


if your hazzards flash, that means your bulbs will be good but, your turn signal fuse is blown. you should check that first, & don't forget to turn off your hazzards before you can see if your turn signals work again. give it a try.

Who is the Service Provider(AT&T, Verizon, etc)? They might be able to temporarily give you access to the global network service which is based off satellites, not cell towers.

The alert is to loud, how can I turn down the volume for the alert?


Press the WEATHER/SNOOZE button to turn on the weather radio. Then press the "UP" or
"DOWN" volume button to select desired listening level. (Note: Turning the volume all the way
down [where no bars show] puts the radio into silent mode.)

Hope that helps resolve the issue.

Regards

I have midland wr-100 weather radio. radio is programed with right codes and channel numbers all i get is a high pitch tone coming out of the speaker


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. The problem is that you are hearing a high pitch tone coming from the speaker. First check to make sure the weather mode is on. To do this, switch the radio to the right side and make sure the Weather Radio On/Off switch is switched to On. You should also check the alarm to make sure it's not on and set. If the alarm is on, turn it off. Your alert type may also be a cause for this. If your alert type is set on TONE, try changing it to DISPLAY or VOICE. Reply back if you still receive problems. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a nice day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. Hope this helps and remember our site the next time you need troubleshooting assistance.

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!

Hi! I've been under 4 different tornado warnings today, and my weather radio hasnt given me one alert. I just put new batteries in it, and checked to make sure I'm on the right channel and the right...


Do you hear a broadcast when you hit the Weather/Snooze button? Is the transmitter that you have programmed broadcasting? NWS does have downtime at the various transmitters and these will be listed at weather.gov. (Click on the map for your region and look at the links in the News of the Day section.) If the signal is being broadcast, try changing where you have the radio placed until you hear the broadcast come through clearly. With one weather radio, I found that I had a better chance of getting the NWS alerts from a different tower than the one listed for my county. My location is closer to this other transmitter. See http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/ for where the transmitters are located in various states. Click on your state for your local map. Check the map for adjacent states if you are near a state border.

Do you have an external antenna? Check that it is properly connected. If not, consider adding one positioned to get a better signal for the nearest transmitter to your location. (With an external antenna, we can get one of several transmitters on that weather radio. This means that we can easily switch when the best transmitter is down, as well.) See www.midlandradio.com to see the antenna that they recommend - which should be placed in a window. This is the 18-259W VHF Through-glass antenna.

Has your radio been picking up the weekly and monthly tests before this? These only give a text message not an alert tone with this Weather Radio. The alert will reset within 6 hours.

Did you set the alarm to Display alerts? This is the silent alarm mode - Tone or Voice would give an audible alert. Check this by pressing Menu then use the Up arrow until you see Alt Type. Press Select and use the Up arrow and then scroll through the options. Press Select to set your choice and then press Menu to exit the menu. Check the volume setting if you have the alarm set for tone or voice.

I hope one of these items help. Otherwise, contact Midland for support. They charge $45 to fix out of warranty weather radios plus a $7.50 shipping and handling charge for any repair. The S&H charge is not required in all states. http://www.midlandradio.com/Resource_/OwnerManual/122/WR-100B.pdf is the direct link to the manual and has the Service details. The direct link to the pdf may not work; you can find this via Google or at the Midland site.

(btw, my household had one weather radio that continuously would lose the ability to hear the test alerts even when placed in a spot that usually got the best reception for the unit. Since that one also did not respond to S.A.M.E. codes properly, we replaced it and put it in our workshop where the intermittent signal loss wouldn't always be critical. Without an external antenna, positioning the radio for best signal took walking around the house many times. Even with the external antenna, it took a while to find the best placement for the antenna.)

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.
