I don't know how to program the FRX3 so that it will sit silently until an emergency message triggers it with a tone signal or what ever they use.


Your best bet would be to obtain directions for setting up the radio. I have a Radio Shack one and it has operated very reliably although it can be unnerving to get a NOAA weather alert in the middle of the night

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.

Regards

Why does my weather radio just beep, no voice, no lights? I have put in all codes for my county


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. You want to know why your weather radio just beeps and no voice or lights function properly. This has nothing to do with the codes you put in for your county. This has to do was the type of alert setting that is programmed into the radio. The alert setting that you have programmed into the radio is probably that TONE alert type. When this is selected, the alert will sound for 5 minutes or until any button is pressed except for the Weather/Snooze button. If you want your alert type settings changed, press MENU and use the up and down directional buttons until "ALT TYPE" is displayed on the screen. Use those same directional buttons to choose the alert type of your choice. If you choose DISPLAY, a text alert will scroll on your screen and no audio alert type will be sounded. If VOICE is selected, an alert will be sounded 8 seconds and you will hear the voice of the weather broadcaster for 5 minutes. These are the only other alert types you can choose other than TONE. Once you have chosen your alert type, press SELECT and and press MENU to exit. Remember that the NWS will only alert you if the storm meets their serve weather criteria (meaning the storm has to be able to cause a certain amount of damage or life threatening to "Wake someone up in the middle of the night"). With this radio functioning properly, it can really help you out in the long run by alerting you with the lastest information of what's going on in your area. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems and thank you for reading my solution.I hope this is the solution to your problem and it clears up any confusion you may have. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you're reading this.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

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.
