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.)
