CUSTOMIZING YOUR WEATHER RADIO

Weather Radio allows selecting and programming of several different
features, including the weather radio channel, country, language of the
events (alerts), alerts, location, signal reminder, alert reminder and alert
mode.
CHANNEL SEARCH
There are two options available for searching of NWR channels – an auto
and manual.
The default channel search mode is auto.
If an auto search is selected, leave the Weather Radio in the default
mode after the main unit has been powered. Then the Weather Radio will
scan automatically through all 7 NOAA frequencies (channels) and lock
on the strongest available channel.
When an auto search is selected and reception is successful, the
Weather Radio will display the number of the received channel (for
example: CHANNEL 7).
If no channel is detected at this time, the message NO CHANNEL
AVAILABLE BACK TO CHANNEL X will be displayed.
If a manual search is selected, follow this programming procedure:
• Press MENU/SELECT button until message MANUAL is
displayed
• Press MENU/SELECT once entering into the channel search
programming mode – a channel number will be displayed
• Press ▲ or ▼ adjusting the desired channel number - 1 through
7
• Press WEATHER/SNOOZE button on the main unit to listen a
NWR broadcast – the icon NOAA will be displayed next to the
reception status icon [
• Press ◄ to exit
NOTE: If your Weather Radio is receiving a NWR broadcast on more
than one channel, the one with the best reception may not be the
best option for your location. Contact NWS for information
regarding broadcasting stations locations.

event is occurring, imminent or likely. Advisories are for less serious
conditions than warnings, which cause significant inconvenience and if
caution is not exercised, could lead to situations that may threaten life or
property.
Watch –potential severe weather approaching your area. It does not
mean severe weather occur, but that the right conditions exist which could
lead to severe storms. You should be prepared for the weather to
deteriorate rapidly.
Warning –severe weather is imminent or present in your vicinity. You
should immediately take precautions to protect yourself and your family.
