Hello i got this radio in 2006 and last year the batteries leaked in it and I opened and cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and it worked fine till after few months it started to become slow like it would...


Corrosion can be deeper in the radio and cause all sorts of problems from rotting copper traces to messing up the keypad. Needs to be checked by a good technician and taken apart even more for cleaning and /or repair

Freeplay S360 Need Replacement Battery Pack


I will give my info here and say that I -was- able to replace the battery in my Freeplay S360. I purchased two of the 2/3 AA rechargable NiCD batteries and soldered them together. Then I rewired it into the radio and voila! It works! Total cost: about US $4 Total time: about 20 minutes Now all I need to do is remember to use the thing every month or so, just to keep the battery in good condition.

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.
NOAA Weather Broadcasts
Channel Frequency
1 162.550
2 162.400
3 162.475
4 162.425
5 162.450
6 162.500
7 162.525

I need to know how to set the radio presets for the Grundig.


If you go to this link; http://www.amazon.com/Grundig-G2000A-AM-Shortwave-Radio/dp/B00000JD4T/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3/104-1966292-9407907?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1175876962&sr=1-3 This is the same model, and under "product details" you can download the manual. Page 21 of the manual (page 10 of the pdf file) should tell you what you need to know. Hope this helps :)
