A low battery warning icon alerts users that batteries are low and need replacing. The WR102 is small, lightweight and constructed of durable materials. With a reception range up to 40 miles, the WR102 is ideal for use in remote outdoor areas and in densely populated areas such as schools, hospitals or offices.

Please note that the WR102 does not have an ON / OFF switch; and that the LCD will light-up once the batteries are inserted. To conserve power, the radio can be set to NOAA Stand-By, NOAA-Mute, or NOAA-Off modes instead of NOAA-On.
Alerts are initially shown on the WR102 as a text display on the LCD screen (Figure A4); then an audio broadcast will follow. At the completion of the audio broadcast message, the WR102 will emit a short burst of static to indicate end of message.
Channel The WR102 labels each frequency channel “A” to “G”. Once a radio frequency for a region has been selected, the WR102 will receive audio and code information on this frequency. The radio channel is located in the upper left hand corner of the LCD.
SAME county codes are required to selectively receive weather and environmental alerts for a specific county, and need to be entered into the WR102. Up to six specific SAME codes can be entered. The first step of programming SAME codes requires the user to select the option of receiving [ALL] warnings or selected warnings.
A county can be subdivided as follows: 1 Northwest 3 Northeast 5 Central 7 Southwest 9 Southeast TO RECEIVE ALL WARNINGS OR SPECIFIC LOCATION WARNINGS: 1.Press [COUNTY] to enter the county-code display from any clock display mode. 2.Press [UP VOLUME] or [ DOWN VOLUME] to select between receiving all [ALL] warnings or only warnings from specified local areas.
RADIO VOLUME The radio volume can be adjusted for personal needs. To set the volume, the radio needs to be in NOAA- On mode and any time display mode. To set the volume: 1. Press [UP VOLUME] or [DOWN VOLUME] to adjust the volume.
REMEMBER: At any stage of the setting sequence, if no entry is made after 9-seconds, the unit will automatically return to the Clock-Display Mode. 2. Press [MODE] for two (2) seconds; the WR102 will beep once when press is initiated and then again after the two seconds.
