Question about Midland Weather/Hazard Radio with SAME Local Alerts
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.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)

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:
Hope this helps!

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.
