Question about Midland WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio

1 Answer

We're not receiving weather alerts. We think we have put in the codes right for our county. It used to work all right. Everything else works but it's not alerting us when there is bad weather.

I have the same problem. The alarm tests good and the radio comes in good but we get no alert. It was working until about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

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.

Got a midland weather radio problem wr100 series. all county codes in and channel set. was working for awhile and now no alerts at all. keeps now saying check reception.


Turn your radio off and then on again. Then press the weather/snooze button. Do you hear the broadcast from your local transmitter? Check NOAA to make sure the station is broadcasting (not down for repairs). Try setting the radio to a different transmitter that covers your area.

You may need an external antenna for the radio (http://www.midlandradio.com/Weather-Radio-Accessories.BPE/18-259W ). Beware: when you use an external antenna, you may receive a broadcast from a different transmitter (farther away). In that case, the weather alerts for your county will likely not come in.

I hope this helps.

(we have two weather radios that are on full-time. The one set to a secondary transmitter does not receive the S.A.M.E. test signals or watches. (It can't be positioned to receive from the primary transmitter clearly.) It does receive warnings for the county correctly. The on/off routine has to be done every few weeks since it doesn't get the test signals. We tried an external antenna and kept getting transmitters from other states and missed tests, watches and warnings. Fortunately our main weather radio does get the primary transmitter and gets the tests, watches and warnings.)

Just bought a Midland 100B Weather Radio. I programmed the channel and SAME Set. I am not receiving any alerts. We are having an alert right now, but it is not displaying the LEDs or the voice/siren is not...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to help solve this concern. You just purchased a Midland WR-100B All-Hazards Weather Radio. You have all the information programmed correctly in it and you are still not receiving any alerts. First of all, log on to this website and check to make sure that the transmitter tower in your area is still working (this means your county does not have a DEGRADED remark in its row).

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm

When you get to the website, select your state and you will see a list of all the counties in your state. Find your county and locate the REMARKS column. If your county has a remark stating "OUT OF SERVICE" or "DEGRADED", it means the tower transmitting broadcasts for your state is not working due to technical problems or recent severe weather conditions. If your county doesn't have one of these remarks beside it, then the reason why you are not receiving any alerts on your radio is because the National Weather Service has special criteria that a storm has to meet in order for them to alert NOAA Weather Radio owners "In the middle of the night or while doing daily activities". To translate that for you, they don't want to disturb anyone by sending alerts for storms that are not "life threatening" or going to cause severe damage. Click on the links below to find out more information about when alerts are broadcast.

http://www.weather.gov/os/eas_codes.shtml

http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm

NWR always runs Required Weekly Testing every Wednesday starting from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. If you are able to, check the radio then. If you see the amber light shine, then you are receiving a test. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/nwrtest.htm is the place to find more information about NWR testing. I hope this will give you a better understanding of when the National Weather Service sends alerts to the viewing area. Thank you for choosing FixYa to as your one-stop solution spot for questions, concerns, problems and requests. Stay safe this Severe Weather Season and have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

Trying to set weather radio with code for my


Go to this website-http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrAL.htm. If you know what county you live in, find it on there and all of the info you need is right beside the county name. If you live in a county that has more than one transmitter, you will have to try all the frequency channels that are affiliated with that county. Whichever channel transmits the best, is the one that you need.

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??
