Go to this website-http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrAL.htm. If you know what county you live in, find it on there and all of the info you need is right beside the county name. If you live in a county that has more than one transmitter, you will have to try all the frequency channels that are affiliated with that county. Whichever channel transmits the best, is the one that you need.

I have it set up for my county. I get no voice, just a humming sound


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. I noticed that you didn't state the county that you live in, because some counties have more than one S.A.M.E code, so you will have to go by your region (i.e. Northern Wayne County, Southern Wayne County). Another trick you could try is fiddling with the antenna. You may have to move your radio to another location within your place of residence (i.e. a bedroom, kitchen, home office, etc.). Below is the link to the NWS/NOAA WEATHER/ALL HAZARDS RADIO website where you can get S.A.M.E codes. Just click the link to your state, and a table will be shown listing the code for every county and or region in your state. Good luck and hope this helps.

Would like codes for the area of 56573


If you need a S.A.M.E. code, NOAA does these by county.

The zip code of 56573 is part of the county of Otter Tail, Minnesota, assuming no typing errors are involved. Thus the S.A.M.E. code is 027111 . Several transmitters cover this region 162.400 (channel 1), 162.500 (channel 5), 162.550 (channel 7), and 162.525 (channel 6) . However, the best transmitter choice is probably Channel 5 (162.500 WNG680) from Fergus Falls. The second best choice for Perham, MN is Channel 1 (162.400 Detroit Lakes WXM64 but it is a low power transmitter). See the link to the coverage map below.

All S.A.M.E. codes are available here: http://www.weather.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm . Click on your State and then look for your county. The Minnesota S.A.M.E. codes are listed here: http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrMN.htm . To see the coverage zones for each of the transmitters, see http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/PHP/minnesota.php (the link to the coverage map is also on the County S.A.M.E. code list page on the left hand side of the page.

Otter Tail is a large county and none of the transmitters seem to cover every inch. So you will need to try your weather radio and see which transmitter gives you the best reception of tests, watches and warnings.

I hope this helps.

(who has several weather radios in the house. They are in different areas and set to receive different transmitters. I live near a county line and the signal strength depends on where in the house you are. We tried using an external antenna. We received the signal from a transmitter from another state at the desired frequency and didn't receive the local warnings.)

I need to know My Code for choctaw county AL


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist with your request. You're requesting the S.A.M.E code for Choctaw County Alabama? I am about to give you the website address to type into your URL address box. From there you will be able to obtain the S.A.M.E code for your county as well as other programming information, if needed, for your radio.

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrAL.htm

Your county's name is listed twice in that list. The reason for this is that your county has two transmitter towers stationed in its broadcasting area. This means your county has two transmitter channels as well. This is helpful if one station's transmitter is out of service. Your S.A.M.E code is the same though in both locations. I hope this website will help you in the future.Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems and requests. Stay safe this Severe Weather Season and stay up-to-date with NOAA Weather Radio broadcasting. Visit our website in the future and have a good day, evening or night; whatever time of day your are viewing this solution post.

How do you program your local weather county codes?


This radio doesn't have the facility to be programmed for your local weather county code.

When set to alert it will pickup on the strongest alert signal in your area.

How to find correct county


A. First, determine the counties you are interested in. Then do one of the following
three steps to get the codes:

1. The National Weather Service Toll-Free Number provides S.A.M.E.
County Codes at: 1-888-NWS-S.A.M.E or (1-888-697-7263)
This is what to expect when you call the NWS number. When you call the NWS
toll-free number, automated instructions will guide you to the S.A.M.E. County
Code(s) you need. The number will be six digits long.
• You will hear, "Welcome to the National Weather Service. You have
reached the Specific Area Message Encoding Program Service."
• If you select "touch-tone" to make your entries, you will be prompted to
enter the name of your state using the telephone keypad.
• Next you will be prompted to enter your county name.
• Then you will hear, "Your geographic code is xxxxxx." (This is your
S.A.M.E. County Code.) Be sure to write it down for future reference.
The system will then give you the option to enter "another combination": This
enables you to get additional S.A.M.E. Codes for surrounding counties.

2. The Internet Web Site of National Weather Servicewww.
nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.
This is what to expect when you go to the website.
• The link above takes you directly to the list of states.
• Click on (your state).
• Find your county, and record the "S.A.M.E. #" (the S.A.M.E. County
Code) that is listed to the right of your county, and for any other counties
in which you are interested.
WR-100 Owner's Manual
Page 8 www.midlandradio.com

3. Go to the Midland Radio Corporation website at www.midlandradio.com
• Click on the weather radio link at the top of the page.
• At the top of the weather radio page will be the link to the NWS list of
states and corresponding county codes. Click on the link.
• Click on your state and a list of counties and codes will be listed. Locate
your county and then find your code.

To set the country follow the below steps:

A Single S.A.M.E. County Code:

Press "MENU" button to open menu options.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through menu options until "S.A.M.E.
SET" is displayed, then press "SELECT" button.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through: "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or
"ANY."
• Display "SINGLE", then press "SELECT." "S.A.M.E.01" will be displayed.
(Note if you are programming a single S.A.M.E. County Code, only the
"01" setting will be used.) Press "SELECT".
• Using the "UP" arrow, find the first digit of your S.A.M.E. County Code.
Press the "RIGHT" arrow to save the digit and automatically
advance to the next digit.
• Program all digits of your S.A.M.E. County Code in the same way.
• Press "SELECT" to store your S.A.M.E. County Code. Press "MENU"
to close the programming menu.
Helpful Tip: The S.A.M.E. code is created using the following method:
• The first digit is the subcounty code-currently 0 in most areas.
• The second two digits represent the state code.
• The last three digits represent the county code.


Multiple S.A.M.E. County Codes:

Press "MENU" button to open menu options.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through menu options until "S.A.M.E.
SET" is displayed, then press "SELECT" button.
• Press the "UP" arrow to scroll through: "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or
"ANY."
• Display "MULTIPLE" as explained, then press "SELECT".
"S.A.M.E.01" will be displayed, indicating you will be programming your first
S.A.M.E. County Code at weather radio menu location "01."
• After programming your first S.A.M.E. County Code, press "SELECT" then
the "UP" arrow to advance to "S.A.M.E. 02." Program all of your S.A.M.E.
County Codes in the same way as above.
• When finished entering all your codes, press "MENU" to
close the programming menu.

Hope that helps.

Regards

Can't installWis. Sauk County (055111) radio setting 164.60


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of You you are reading this. The summary of this problem is that you cannot program your information for Sauk County Wisconsin.Your S.A.M.E code is correct, but I am a little concern about the channel code. You have it set on 164.60, the two channel codes for your county are - 162.450 & 162.550. You may need to switch your radio channel code. This is the best solution I can think of. Here is the website for more county coverage information - http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrWI.htm. Your county is located in the S group. I hope this is the best solution to your problem. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Hope you have a better experience with this radio. Have a good day or night.
