Stay alert to conditions that affect you with Midland's WR-300 all-hazard/weather alert radio. The unit offers S.A.M.E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding), which pre-programs the device to receive only those warnings that apply to your local area--you can choose state, county, and/or nearby counties. The single-speaker radio offers 23 programmable county codes, AM/FM tuning, date, time, alarm functions, and automatically switches from AM/FM to pertinent all-hazard alerts.
 
For tuning, the radio employs drift-free PLL (phase-lock loop) technology and an easy-to-read blue, backlit LCD. You get a convenient, 10-alert memory, and you can add, edit, and remove unwanted alerts at any time. The radio uses the supplied AC power adapter or four AA Batteries (not included).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does it use batteries for backup

    Yes. It runs off the AC adapter normally. The battery is for backup.

  • Tornado Warning option? Is this an error?

    The tornado warning is probably not on the list because Midland believes it would not be prudent to disable it, so they don't even give you the option. I believe hurricane warning is not on the list for the same reason.

  • Alarm: I work overnights and sleep during the day, how loud is the alarm for warnings?

    If you're truly concerned, I suggest turning the volume all the way up--if you're in the same room, you will most likely jump out of your skin. The alarm for warnings is *quite loud*. Furthermore, the alert volume setting is also adjustable, HI and LO; see page 23 of the owner's manual. (Louder than a thousand freight trains, though? I'm not sure about that.)
