Question about Midland WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio
I have a Midland WR-100...and a 2 year old. The radio worked fine - had my SAME counties programmed and everything was OK until my 2 year old started punching buttons. Finally looked at the radio - the batteries were dead because the power source wasn't plugged into the DC 'port' but into the external antennae 'port'. I replaced the batteries, plugged the power into the DC port and reviewed my SAME county codes - they're all still there. Only thing is my radio no longer makes the loud, audible alerts when amber alerts or tests are issued. Need a fix before tornado season!! Thanks in advance, Concerned dad
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??
