No alerts. I know they must be broadcasting because we have had two very bad storms but no alerts have come through. I have checked everything. Don't know why. Used to get them with no problem.

How do i get my WR 100 to stop squeaking durring a weather emergency?


Have you tried tuning to different NOAH frequencies to see if one of them gets better reception? Also, if the radio is close to other electrical devices, they could be causing interference with your weather radio reception.
Just a couple ideas tossed out there.
Good luck.

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.

Why does my weather radio just beep, no voice, no lights? I have put in all codes for my county


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. You want to know why your weather radio just beeps and no voice or lights function properly. This has nothing to do with the codes you put in for your county. This has to do was the type of alert setting that is programmed into the radio. The alert setting that you have programmed into the radio is probably that TONE alert type. When this is selected, the alert will sound for 5 minutes or until any button is pressed except for the Weather/Snooze button. If you want your alert type settings changed, press MENU and use the up and down directional buttons until "ALT TYPE" is displayed on the screen. Use those same directional buttons to choose the alert type of your choice. If you choose DISPLAY, a text alert will scroll on your screen and no audio alert type will be sounded. If VOICE is selected, an alert will be sounded 8 seconds and you will hear the voice of the weather broadcaster for 5 minutes. These are the only other alert types you can choose other than TONE. Once you have chosen your alert type, press SELECT and and press MENU to exit. Remember that the NWS will only alert you if the storm meets their serve weather criteria (meaning the storm has to be able to cause a certain amount of damage or life threatening to "Wake someone up in the middle of the night"). With this radio functioning properly, it can really help you out in the long run by alerting you with the lastest information of what's going on in your area. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems and thank you for reading my solution.I hope this is the solution to your problem and it clears up any confusion you may have. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you're reading this.

Our radio has never sounded an alert. It is programmed for Wabash County, Indiana, code 018169, and is plugged into an outlet. It has no batteries in it. Does it require batteries to work? The...


The answer to your first question is no, but the company that made this product and even I suggest that you put 3 AA batteries in the radio for back-up just in case you have a power outage. Maybe you had a power outage and that's why it didn't sound an alert. The possible answer to your second question is that it the storm itself may have not been severe enough for the NWS to issue a severe storm. You should check these websites for more information- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq & http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm. FAQ #10 on the first website listed should give a clarification to you problem. They have certain criterias for issuing a warning and sounding an alert. The second website should give you a clarification on when the NWS sounds an alarm.

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.

I've lost the operating manual for my Eton FR-300 emergency radio


Your radio does not offer the S.A.M.E. capability that would let you receive alerts for just your specific area, but it will let you receive all alerts broadcast by the NOAA station that your radio is tuned to. Here is a link to the owners manual where you can find more details:
