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.

Tip

How To Program Your Radio To Send You Alerts To Only Your County


To cause less confusion when getting alerts on your radio, you should program your radio to send you alerts to your county only. To do this, press the MENU button and press the up button until you see "SAME SET" on your screen, then press SELECT. Make sure your screen is presenting "SINGLE"; if it's not, use your UP or DOWN arrow until you see "SINGLE" presented on your screen, then prees SELECT. Next you will see "SAME 01" presented on your screen, press SELECT and type in the S.A.M.E. code for your county (if you do not know the S.A.M.E. code for your county, go to this website- http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm, choose your state and find your county in the listings. Make sure your S.A.M.E code matches the frequency channel of your area as well.). When you are finish with that, press the MENU button four times to exit out.

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.

I bought my Midland WR-100 Weather Radio in 2008, from Walmart {Midwest City, OK}. They programmed it there, for Oklahoma County, and surounding Countys as well. It worked the 1st year, continuely as many...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night, depending on the time of day you are reading this. From what you are requesting here, you want weather alerts for only for Oklahoma County? Here are the steps for doing this.

  1. If you need the S.A.M.E code for Oklahoma County, type this URL address into your URL box (http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrOK.htm).
  2. Scroll down and find your county name and the S.A.M.E code will be located right beside it.
  3. Obtain your Weather Radio and press the MENU button.
  4. Use the directional up or down buttons until you see the word "SAME SET" on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  5. You will either see the words "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or "ANY" on your screen. When this is seen, press SELECT if you see "SINGLE". Use the directional up or down buttons (if "SINGLE" does not appear on your screen) until "SINGLE" is displayed on the screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  6. You will see the words SAME 01 on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  7. Using the directional up or down buttons, program the first number of the code in the blinking column. When finished, press the > (directional right) button as this will automatically save the number and advance you to the next column.
  8. Continue Step 7 until all numbers are programmed in the radio.
  9. When finished, press SELECT as this will store and automatically save your code.
  10. Press MENU to exit.
If you followed these steps correctly, your radio should now be programmed to respond to only one county. To set it to respond to multiple counties again, follow these steps, only this time instead of choosing "SINGLE" you will choose "MULTIPLE". The "alarm not stopping until it's turned off", is a normal function and should not be tampered with. Hope this will come in handy in the future, especially during Tornado Season, as you state is in the region known as "Tornado Alley". This radio will keep you notified, informed on what's happening weather-wise and could possibly save your life from Mother Nature's threats. Thank you for taking the time to request your problem, read and perform this solution. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop spot for finding solutions to your problems! Be safe this Tornado Season and have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are reading this.

Need code for columbia co. ga 30907


1. Type in this URL address-http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.

2. Click on your state

3. Find the county you live in. The S.A.M.E. code should be listed in the "SAME#" column. If you have two codes for your county, it probably means one of the codes transmits for different regions of your county. No problem, all you have to do is check your frequency station. Whatever frequency receives the best reception for your county (for example 162.450), put in the S.A.M.E code for the county that has that frequency.

My midland wr-100 will not work when it is set for same . Do you enter the freq. Or the same code


Do you have your S.A.M.E set for "Single"? If you don't, set the setting for "Single" and punch in the S.A.M.E code for your county. If you've already done that, then the problem may be that you live in a county that has one S.A.M.E code and two frequency channels. What you need to do is try both frequency channels for your county (you can find this information at www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm) and whichever one gives you the best reception, listen to that channel. Now keep in mind, the NWS have certain criterias for issuing a severe thunderstorm warning. To find out more info, go to http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq and look at FAQ #10. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Hi, not sure why the manual I uploaded doesn't show up anywhere so here it is in 2 posts (too large for 1 post)

Stormtracker Vector Model: VEC438 Classified: UNOFFICIAL USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Programing Instructions
To Program Alert:
Turn the radio on and then press:
1. Menu button (may have to hold it a few seconds) and Alert should show in the Display.
2. Press Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button which will display one of the following: Voice/Siren/or Off.
3. Then use the Menu button to select between Voice/Siren/or Off.
3. After making your selection, press the Memory button to the left of the Menu button. This completes the programming of the alert function.
Example: If "Siren" is displayed on the LCD screen and you push the Memory button to the left of the Menu button, when a weather alert is broadcast the siren tone will sound and the appropriate yellow or red light will activate. If "OFF" is displayed on the LCD screen and the Memory button is pushed, the alert will not activiate.

To Program County
Turn the radio on and then press:
1. Menu button (may have to hold it a few seconds) and when ALERT appears, tap Menu button to scroll to County.
2. Press Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button which will display one of the following: All/Multiple/or Single
3. Then use the Menu button to select between All/Multiple/or Single (You'll need to know the S.A.M.E. codes for the area you want to listen to, otherwise select ALL and you will recieve "All" Statements, Watches & Warnings without having to select a specific County).
4. After making your selection, press the Memory button to the left of the Menu button if ALL was selected or Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button if you chose Multiple or Single (You'll see CODE01 on the display) If you chose Multiple use the Menu button to choose which Code Position to enter (01-10) then press the Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button. Enter the first digit of the S.A.M.E. code then press the Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button to move to the next digit of the S.A.M.E. code. Repeat this for all digits of the S.A.M.E. code. Then press the Memory button to the left of the Menu button to lock in that code. Press the Menu button to select the next code position to enter. Then press the Channel/Snooze button to the right of the Menu button, then the Menu button to select the digit of the next S.A.M.E. code to be entered. Repeat these steps as necessary to enter in all the S.A.M.E. codes you wish to enter, each time pressing the Memory button to the left of the Menu to lock in each code position. When completed entering in all S.A.M.E. codes press the Memory key again to lock in all codes and return to normal operation. This completes the programming of the County Code function.
Example:
COUNTY SAME # NWR TRANSMITTER FREQ. CALL SIGN WATTS
Fulton 013121 Atlanta 162.550 KEC80 500
Colquitt 013071 Pelham 162.550 WXK53 1000
Colquitt 013071 Valdosta 162.500 WWH31 1000
NOAA Weather Radio Frequencies
162.400 MHz (WX2)
162.425 MHz (WX4)
162.450 MHz (WX5)
162.475 MHz (WX3)
162.500 MHz (WX6)
162.525 MHz (WX7)
162.550 MHz (WX1)
Channel numbers, e.g. (WX1, WX2) etc. have no special significance but are often designated this way in consumer equipment. Other channel numbering schemes are also prevalent. Best to just tune to the strongest sounding station in your area, this radio does not display frequiencies, only channel numbers.
