The radio is defective. When the receiver fails, it defaults to a high pitch tone, alerting the user that the radio receiver has failed. It is not worth repairing the unit so buy a replacement. This was a common failure among the WR-100 units

Check this website's FAQs page- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq. Your answer may be in FAQ #10. It may be also that your local NWS transmitter may not have been receiving a good transmission because of the type of severe weather that you had. Maybe you should call your local NWS office and plea your case. I don't know if this will help, but this is my suggestion.

First, make sure you have a battery installed, and then run it off of the wall adapter. Extend the telescopic antenna all the way out. Go to MENU and then select the local channel for your county (channels 1-7 - use whatever channel is strongest). Once you select the correct channel, then hit the MENU button again, and then you should hear weather forecasts. Press the VOL UP or DOWN buttons to get the right volume for you. If you get to the 'CHANNEL' selection and still have a tone, then you have a defective radio that you will need to exchange. Good luck - let me know if you get it working okay. Happy New Year!

SOURCE: my midalnd weather radio WR-100

The high pitch sound is a sign of the autooscillation of the intermediate frequency amplifier from the tuner in your radio - hardware defect. The only way to fix that is to replace the tuner and realign it. This would cost you about $100 for the part and labor.
Since you can buy a brand new unit for less than $40 it's clear what you should do.

Weather radio just gives off high pitch squeal and no weather info.


If you hold the WEATHER/SNOOZE button and the VOLUME UP button, it resets the radio to its deafult factory settings.

The alert is to loud, how can I turn down the volume for the alert?


Press the WEATHER/SNOOZE button to turn on the weather radio. Then press the "UP" or
"DOWN" volume button to select desired listening level. (Note: Turning the volume all the way
down [where no bars show] puts the radio into silent mode.)

Hope that helps resolve the issue.

Our radio has never sounded an alert. It is programmed for Wabash County, Indiana, code 018169, and is plugged into an outlet. It has no batteries in it. Does it require batteries to work? The...


The answer to your first question is no, but the company that made this product and even I suggest that you put 3 AA batteries in the radio for back-up just in case you have a power outage. Maybe you had a power outage and that's why it didn't sound an alert. The possible answer to your second question is that it the storm itself may have not been severe enough for the NWS to issue a severe storm. You should check these websites for more information- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq & http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm. FAQ #10 on the first website listed should give a clarification to you problem. They have certain criterias for issuing a warning and sounding an alert. The second website should give you a clarification on when the NWS sounds an alarm.

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)

162.475 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.
