Software for National Geographic 265NC


I tried the software that came with the National Geographic weather station 265NC but found it not what I wanted for history data. I downloaded Cumulus software from Sandaysoft.com I have used it since 2009 and have had no problems. When setting up the station on the software use Fine Offset as a menu selector for type of station as that worked for me.

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.

I love my radio and she is always there for me..til just the other day..no warning lights..i cant get it to speak the weather ..yes even with the radio on..i can go thru the menu to get the alarm to test...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your problem is that your weather radio is not giving you updates and your warning lights are not coming on when there's a severe weather warning? I am first going to tell you to check your S.A.M.E code to make sure you have it programmed for your county. If this is correct, I don'there's anything wrong with your radio. I think, the problem might be your county/area's transmitter tower. If your county/area's transmitter tower is near one the states that have been recently attacked by tornadoes or severe weather, the transmitter tower may be out of service. You say you live in Georgia, so further in this explanation I will give you the NWS's (National Weather Service's) weather radio programming information website for your state. This will give you information for every county in your state including which transmitters are out of service if any. If the tower for your county is out of service, check a county that's near your area to see if their tower is out service. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/Maps/PHP/georgia.php gives you all the NWR stations in your state. Click on your county and it will show you a map of their broadcasting area. If it's not out of service, program that county's S.A.M.E code into your radio. You should also change the frequency channel to that same county as well.

http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrGA.htm

You may also want to check your antenna to make sure it's connected properly and fully extended. The National Weather Service has certain criteria that a storm must follow in order for them to sound the alarm. I assure you that the lights will come on when the radio is giving you a warning. To find out more information about this, log on to this website -http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm. I hope you get your radio back up and running as soon as possible. You can always go on the National Weather Service's website as well, to get weather updates for your area. I hope you are safe this Severe Weather Season and Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution.

My Midland Weather Radio is alerting on central Florida Counties when I live on the nature coast (Citrus County). Do I have to prgram in my ZIP for it to know where I reside?


You have to program what is called a "SAME" code specific to your county. These weather radio SAME codes are available from the National Weather Service website. Look up your state, then your county - it will give you the 6 digit code for your country, AND what frequency if closest to you as well. You will want to delete the unused counties, which is the whole idea behind these radios - program ONLY the one or two counties CLOSEST to you. There is also a phone number for these codes. You can also email you local NWS office on their website for assistance. The 6 digit code made up of a 3 digit number for your state and the 3 digit number for your county, making it specific to your location. Let me know if you need more info. Regards.
