How to Program your Midland All Hazards Weather Alert Radio

You’ll need:

  • Midland All Hazards Weather Alert Radio
  • 3 AA batteries
  • A/C power adaptor (included)
  • Put your three AA batteries in the back of the weather radio.
  • The screen will light up and come on by itself in a few seconds.
  • When the time “12:00AM” appears, your radio is ready to program.
  • Program the Time

    Push the menu key and the word "TIME" will appear. Push the select key and “12:00AM” will appear. (The “12” will be flashing). Change the hour by using the up or down arrow key above the “Weather/Snooze” bar. (The clock is a 12 hour clock so you must move the hour to PM or AM). Continue to use the up or down arrow keys to reach the correct time. Next, use the right arrow key to move to the minutes. Repeat the process to set the minutes. When you are at the correct time hit the select key. The word "TIME" will appear on the screen again.

    Program the Correct Weather Channel Frequency

    Use the down arrow key until you reach the word "CHANNEL". Push the select key. Using the up/down arrow keys, change the frequency until you find the cleanest audio signal. Leave it on that channel to hear the latest weather information. Use the up/down volume keys - on the right - to adjust the volume.

    Now, Program your SAME Code

    Use your down arrow key to change the word on the screen to "SAME SET". Push the select key button. If you want to program only one code, use your up/down arrow keys to move to "SINGLE". Press the select key

    OR

    If you want to program multiple SAME codes, use your up/down arrow keys to move to “MULTIPLE”. Press the select key.

    Programming a Single SAME Code

    If you want your weather radio to be programmed for only one county's SAME code, push the down arrow again and hit select. “SAME 01” will appear on the screen. Push your select key again. “000000” or “-- -- -- -- -- -- -- --“ will appear on the screen and the first digit will be flashing. Using the SAME code for the county you want to program, use the arrow keys to move the number up or down. Once the first number is entered, use the right arrow key to move to the next number. Continue with the process until you have entered each number. Hit "select" and then press the "menu" key twice. Use the down arrow key until you reach the word “CHANNEL”. Push the select key twice to get out of the menu.

    Programming Multiple SAME codes

    If you want to program multiple SAME codes, use your up/down arrow keys to move to “MULTIPLE”. Press the select key. The word “SAME 01” will appear on the screen. Hit the select key again. “000000” or “-- -- -- -- -- -- -- --“ will appear on the screen. The first digit will be flashing. Using the SAME code for the first county to be programmed, use the up/down arrow keys to move the number up or down. Once the first number is entered, use the right arrow key to move to the next number. Continue with the process until you have entered the first code. Then, push the select key. The words “SAME 01” will appear again. Push the up arrow key and the message will change to "SAME 02". Push the select key. “000000” or “-- -- -- -- -- -- -- --“ will appear on the screen. Enter the numbers just like you just did for the previous code. Continue this process until all the codes have been entered. Hit "select" and then press the "menu" key twice.

    Important

    Now that your radio has been programmed, plug the AC adapter into the wall outlet and plug the other end of the cable into the "DC JACK" port on the back of the radio. The batteries are only used to program the radio and in case you lose power. You’ll probably need to move the radio around to get the best signal. Make sure the “On/Off” switch on the right side of the radio is always turned to the “On” position. Push the “Weather/Snooze” bar anytime for the latest weather information 24 hrs a day.
