Question about Midland Weather/Hazard Radio with SAME Local Alerts

Open Question

We can't pick up anything on our weather/hazard radio-it comes on & lights up and Check OP is on screen. Do I need to unplug my radio & reprogram?

When the Check OP message goes off a few minutes, I can go thru some details of the setup but then "Check OP" is displayed again. It has been a couple of months since it has scanned, alerted, etc. What should I do? This radio is 6-7 years old.

SOURCE: Keeps flashing check reception

That's because you haven't received a Required Weekly Test (RWT) for the present or past week. I just had a problem like this not to long ago. You should try unplugging the radio and taking out the batteries. Put the batteries back into the radio and plug it back in. Check to make sure your settings are still intact (you'll have to reset your time.). I'll have to check the radio this week to make sure that RWT comes in. The National Weather Service (NWS) does its Weekly Required Testing on Wednesdays between 10 a.m. & 12 p.m., I haven't had a "check reception" message scroll across the screen since everything was reset; and to enhance your confidence doing this, I actually saw a person who works on these radios, do this to my radio. As far as the weather radio going off, it really does go off when severe weather strikes, because mine just went off (my area is receiving a flash flood warning). The weather you have been receiving probably isn't "severe" enough for the NWS to sound the alarm. For more information on when and what type of event sounds the alarm, and the procedures proceeded when the alarm goes off; go to these websites:

SOURCE: Need instructions to reset my Midland weather

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.

Indicators and hazard lights not working.


The blinkers run though the Hazard switch.
Have you done work recently on the radio or anything in the dash where it could have come unplugged?
I would check the switch and make sure it's all connected there first.
I have seen several people with this issue and most just recently installed a radio (or had one stolen) and the hazardbutton never got plugged back in... Locksmith Kenmore Ny 24 Hour Locksmith 716 848 0099 in Kenmore Ny

Need Radio Shack weather radio Cat. No 12-521 manual


Step 1:

CHECK OP (Check Operation) means your radio has not received any type of
SAME alert signal (include test or demo signals) for about 10 days.

Make sure the antenna is fully extended and the stored location is correct. See
"Programming Locations and SAME Codes" on page 9 for more information.


Step 2:

With my cobra 29 wx nw st I can not pick up any weather channels. I have the k30 antenna. Do I need a dual band antenna?


Do you hear static when you turn on weather? If so there are just none in range of you. There are not weather radio stations everywhere. You would not use a dual band antenna on any CB. Only an antenna designed for the 11 meter band. Which is the 27mhz CB radio band.

You can go here and see if you have NOAA All hazards weather radio coverage in your area.

If the CB radio is working otherwise it is most likely that there is just not a NOAA transmitter near you.

WHAT DOES "CHECK OP" MEAN? IT IS ON THE FACE OF MY


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with this question. You're receiving a message on your radio screen that says "Check Operation" and want to know how to clear it out. Whenever you see that "Check Operation" message on your radio, that means your radio has not received any activity (warnings or messages) for a number of days or weeks. This is something the radio does automatically. The message will clear off your screen when an alert has been announced or a Required Weekly Test (RWT) or Required Monthly Test (RMT) has been performed. I have a Midland WR-100 Weather Radio and it does the same thing. I get a Required Monthly Test on the last Wednesday of each month. After the test is completed, the message goes away. The National Weather Service conducts these test on Wednesdays starting at 10 a.m. Check your radio on Wednesday to see if you still see this message. The message should be gone around 6:00 PM or later. I hope this answers your question and thank you for choosing FixYa to answer your question. We hope you get the best user experience out this radio. Stay safe this Severe Weather Season, keep updated with your NOAA Weather Radio and have a good day, evening or night; whatever time of day you are reading this. Visit our website again the next time you need assistance with a problem or need a question answered.

Scanner will pick up the weather but will not pick up anything else It is a uniden 506xlt


Your local police and fire may have switched to a digital trunking system which only a few scanners can receive. Check on RadioReference.com and/or a local ham radio operator, or last resort, your Radio Shack store near you.

Error


You have come to the right place at the right time to get this solution! I just had this problem not to long ago. First I research it online and pulled up this website (http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq#FAQ9). They said that reading will come up because you haven't received a Routine Weekly Test (RWT), and that you should recheck the programming and monitor it next time to see if it is functioning properly. Lucky for me though, one of our area's news stations was hosting their "Weather Radio Wednesday" event at Walgreens. One of the news station's weathermen and some people that work for this civil emergency radio agency, were there to help program weather radios. I told one of the radio programmers the "check reception" problem and all he did was take the batteries out, put them back in the radio and check the programming information to make sure everything was okay. He said everything was fine, just make sure the antenna is extended out fully (which I had already knew that and had it near a window setting.) When I came out of the store, I looked at the LCD and "check reception" was not scrolling across the screen anymore. Maybe you should what this guy did and just monitor the radio for an RWT. They usually have these on Wednesdays at 11:00 am.
