My midland wr100 is going off for the wrong county, sometimes not for a county that isn't even programmed!!!


Press the menu button once until you see "TIME", press the up arrow until you see "SAME SET", press select, you should have "SINGLE" selected if you are only wanting to get alarms on one SAME code. Press "SELECT" the screen should go to SAME 01, press select again and confirm that you have the correct SAME code entered. "MULTIPLE" will allow for more than one SAME code to alert and "ANY" will set the unit off for any SAME code alert.

My Midland WR100 weather radio is set for any S.A.M.E. code. I live in Oklahoma. We have tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings, and my radio has not sounded. If i press the weather/snooze...


I have been used this Midland weather radio with S.A.M.E alert for last 2 years. My device works perfectly. My radio has sounded whether any tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings. After reading your post you have to face some problems with your device, that during tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings your radio not sounded. If you follow some steps then your issue will be resolved. Carefully review the manual. Or, it is possible that the NWS did not issue a warning for the storm. Warnings are issued for thunderstorms. If a storm is not expected to produce severe weather, a warning with an alert is not issued.

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.)

Program county weather code


Sorry, but your radio does not have that feature, which is known as S.A.M.E. When set on ALERT your radio will receive all alert messages broadcast by the NOAA station that you are tuned to. The only fix, unfortunately, is to purchase a set that has the S.A.M.E. feature.

Not receiving alerts anymore...


My wr-100 came with a special note inserted with the instructions that the WR-100 was programmed to not give off an audible alert on tests. This is to supposedly protect you from thinking you have a real emergency. Mine is new. Maybe the older ones had an audible test alert. I assume yours gave an alert at one time??
