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

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. I noticed that you didn't state the county that you live in, because some counties have more than one S.A.M.E code, so you will have to go by your region (i.e. Northern Wayne County, Southern Wayne County). Another trick you could try is fiddling with the antenna. You may have to move your radio to another location within your place of residence (i.e. a bedroom, kitchen, home office, etc.). Below is the link to the NWS/NOAA WEATHER/ALL HAZARDS RADIO website where you can get S.A.M.E codes. Just click the link to your state, and a table will be shown listing the code for every county and or region in your state. Good luck and hope this helps.

First make sure that the radio is off (in standby mode). Then press and hold Mode for 2 seconds. (That's the button on the right near the NOAA logo.) You should see the 12/24 Hr option flashing. Press Tune Up or Tune Down to switch this if needed. Then press and release the Mode button. Use the Tune Up/Down buttons to set the current hour; check the AM/PM if in the 12-hour mode. You can press and release the up/down arrows to slowly change the hour. If you hold the button, the hour will advance or reverse rapidly. Press and release Mode when the current hour is reached. Repeat the use the Tune Up/Down buttons to set the hour. Press Mode to exit the clock setting mode.

This is shown in the manual which is available here: http://pdf.lowes.com/operatingguides/077283726002_oper.pdf . See pages 8-9 (9-10 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

I have been used this Midland weather radio with S.A.M.E alert for last 2 years. My device works perfectly. My radio has sounded whether any tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings. After reading your post you have to face some problems with your device, that during tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings your radio not sounded. If you follow some steps then your issue will be resolved. Carefully review the manual. Or, it is possible that the NWS did not issue a warning for the storm. Warnings are issued for thunderstorms. If a storm is not expected to produce severe weather, a warning with an alert is not issued.

On the Midland Weather Radio WR-100 web page of this website, scroll down until you get to the "Manual" heading. There is a link there (WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio Manual); click it and your instructions manual will come up in a .pdf format. To get the frequency channel for Amarillo, go to this website- http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrTX.htm. I do not know what county you live, so you will have to look at every county listing that has your city name in its group. When you find the information you need, insert it into your radio.

This is common on some WR100 models. This means ur speaker is blown, and it wont work anymore. Try buying the new WR120, it has a more stable speaker.

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. It would be more helpful if you could name the state you live in. There are 6 Custer Counties in the United States. But since I don't know which specific state you live in, I will give you the links to each of the five of the six states that contain Custer County (Idaho has no NWR coverage).

1. Colorado (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=CO)
2. Montana (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=MT)
3. Nebraska (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=NE)
4. Oklahoma (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=OK)
5. South Dakota (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/ccov.php?State=SD)
Hope these help.
