2http://www.midlandradio.comYour new MIDLAND All Hazard/Weather Receiver

Model WR-100 is the latest advance in weather and alert monitoring technology, providing you with the information you need for your greatest safety from weather and other hazards. The MIDLAND All Hazard/Weather Receiver tunes into the 24/7 broadcast issued by the National Weather Service. The combined All Hazard/Weather Alert broadcast network is the most immediate source for comprehensive weather and emergency information available instantaneously to the public, in advance of TV and monitor bulletins.

This MIDLAND All Hazard/Weather Alert Receiver has an innovative automatic alert system. In the event of special warning broadcasts, the monitor is automatically activated along with a loud tone, an LED light and an “alert” message on the LCD. Emergency weather bulletins include alerts about tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, ice/snow storms and other severe weather. Other emergencies might include Amber Alerts, explosions, fires or hazardous chemical spills.

We encourage you to read this Owner’s Manual thoroughly before operating this unit. This manual is a valuable part of your new MIDLAND All Hazard/Weather Alert Receiver. See the “Quick Start Instructions” section of this manual for the initial Weather Receiver setup and programming. After this weather receiver is programmed and operating properly, store the manual in a safe place.

What is S.A.M.E.? Specific Area Message Encoding- S.A.M.E. - Is a feature in MIDLAND Weather Radios that allows you to program in your county code or counties codes. This will eliminate any Alerts that are not within your programmed Specific Area. For example, if you only want to be informed for alerts within your county just program in your county code. But, if you want to be informed about counties that are North, South, East and West of you, you can do so.

Note: In addition to your own county code, you may wish to obtain the S.A.M.E. county code(s) for other counties close to you. The S.A.M.E.

County Code(s) you program into your Weather Receiver will determine which counties your Weather Receiver will respond to. (The counties must be within the ± 50-mile broadcast coverage area of your local NWS.) A. First, to determine the S.A.M.E. county code(s) for counties in which you are interested: (1) call the toll-free NWS telephone number, (2) access NOAA Web Site at: www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.

1. The National Weather Service Toll-Free Number provides

S.A.M.E. County Codes at:

1-888-NWS-SAME. or (1-888-697-7263)

2. The NOAA Weather Radio Web Site provides S.A.M.E. County Codes at: www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.

Note Internet access is available free of charge at many public libraries in the United States.

B. Then, when you have the S.A.M.E. County Code(s) you want to, program them into your Weather Receiver as follows.

Note all empty memory locations will be indicated as “-- -- -- -- -- --” on the Weather Receiver display.

1. Turn off Weather Receiver for silent programming.

Your Weather Receiver comes preprogrammed to receive NWS Weather and Hazard Alert transmissions for any and all S.A.M.E. county codes within range. If you want to receive all Weather and Hazard Alert transmissions within reception range, leave your Weather Receiver set to “ANY.” 7 http://www.midlandradio.com To Program a Single S.A.M.E. County Code on your Weather
