• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Midland WR-100 Public Alert Weather Radio that Only Squeals A High Pitch Tone When Weather /Snooze Is Pressed = FIX

Mar 10, 2019
If you happen to have one of these units and it all of a sudden fails to work properly here is a possible fix... If by chance anyone has one of this radios in 2019 that all it does is have a high pitch squeal with no weather station reception ...pull batteries out then unplug and hold vol up and weather / snooze button at same time and plug back in, all 3 warning lights will light and you will see the unit display reset then release buttons and your WR -100 will work normally again but you will need to re-enter the SAME code for your areas.
