SOURCE: programing pager tone alerts

The scanner itself does not directly support decoding of pager tones, but if you know someone who can manage their way around a bit of soldering and hacking, they might be able to rig something up with an old pager which could be triggered from the audio output jack from the scanner.

Do you have the codes to operate a universal Radio Shack remote, model 15-2142 for a Magnasonic DVD/VCR Dual Deck Model 825?


You can find the manual for the Radio Shack 4-in-1 Remote 15-2142 at ManualsLib and some other sites. A direct link to the PDF of the manual is here: http://www.rockabilly.net/files/manuals/15-2142.pdf . The ManualsLib version of the manual: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/635735/Radio-Shack-4-In-1-Remote-Control.html . The only code listed for a Magnasonic VCR is 0593. No Magnasonic DVD players are listed. If your Magnasonic DVD/VCR was built more than 6 months before the remote was programmed, then the remote has the best chance of having the correct code. The copyright date for the manual appears to be 1999.

I hope this helps. You may want to try searching through all of the codes. Many electronics manufacturers use a common supplier for the IR sensor chip and encoding.

Owner manual


Its a dual trunking scanner which usually means either Uniden or Radio Shack.

Radio Shack has an area on their site where you can download manuals for almost all of their scanners and Uniden may have that as well online.

Bearcat is Uniden by the way who actually makes the Radio Shack units. On Radio Shack you may find a manual similar to the model if a Uniden unit.

Also if you have not tried it GOOGLE the brand and model number with "manual".

I have a oreton scientific portable public alert radio model wr108 I need a battery for it where can iorder one there aren't any in my area



  • That being said, your radio can use 3 regular AA batteries. If it were me I wouldn't fool with tracking down some overpriced battery pack because all that battery pack is, is 3 AA batteries in some shrink tube. Buy 3 AA rechargeable batteries from Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

  • Also you need to hit the reset button in the back when ever you change the batteries.

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.

I've lost the operating manual for my Eton FR-300 emergency radio


Your radio does not offer the S.A.M.E. capability that would let you receive alerts for just your specific area, but it will let you receive all alerts broadcast by the NOAA station that your radio is tuned to. Here is a link to the owners manual where you can find more details:
