WR-100 Owner's Manual
Thank you for choosing Midland! Your new WR-100 weather radio is the lat-
est in weather and hazard alert monitoring technology, providing you with the
information needed to keep you safe. Your WR-100 weather radio has a special
receiver that tunes to the 24/7 broadcast issued by the National Weather Service.
The combined All Hazards/Weather Alert broadcast network is the single, most
immediate source for comprehensive weather and emergency information avail-
able to the public.
This WR-100 weather radio has an innovative, automatic alert system. In
the event of special warning broadcasts, the radio is automatically activated along
with a loud tone, an LED indicator 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, hazardous explosions, fires, chemical spills, and other civil emer-
In addition, the WR-100 weather radio has the "S.A.M.E. Digital Weather/
Hazard Alert" feature, providing you with constant monitoring of your local NWS
broadcast. The S.A.M.E. decoding receiver allows you to hear only messages for
the area(s) concerning you. You now have a choice as to what information will be
brought to you.
We encourage you to read this owner's manual thoroughly before
operating this radio. This manual is a valuable part of your new Midland
weather radio. See the "Quick Start Instructions" section of this manual for
the initial weather radio setup and programming. After this weather radio is
programmed and operating properly, store the manual in a safe place.
