WMBF News' Midland Weather Radio promotion is sponsored by Midland Radio Corporation and Walgreens.

WMBF is committed to helping our viewers program their radios to receive alert messages for their local areas. See the step-by-step instructions below, and use the links to the right to get the South Carolina and North Carolina SAME codes for your county. You'll need that code as part of the programming instructions.

How to Program your Midland All Hazards Weather Alert Radio

You will need the following

  • Midland All Hazards Weather Alert Radio
  • 3 AA batteries
  • A/C power adaptor

Put your three AA batteries in the back of the weather radio.

Wait for the radio to turn on. When the time 12:00AM appears your radio is ready to program. 

How to Program the Time

  1. Push the menu key the word "TIME" will appear.
  2. Push the select key and 12:00AM will appear. The 12 will be flashing. 
  3. Change the hour by using the up arrow key or down arrow key on the radio. 
  4. The clock is a 12 hour clock so you must move the hour to PM or AM. 
  5. Continue to use arrow keys to reach the desired time.  When you have reached the correct hour, use the right arrow key on the radio to move to the minute. 
  6. Repeat the process to get to the correct time.  When you are at the correct time hit the select key. The word "TIME" will appear on the screen. 

How to Program your SAME code

  1. Next use your down arrow key to change the word on the screen to "SAME SET".
  2. Push the select key button. 
  3. If you want to program only one code use your up/down arrow keys to move to "SINGLE". Press the select key OR if you want to program multiple SAME codes use your up/down arrow keys to move to MULTIPLE. Press the select key.

Programming a single SAME code

If you want your weather radio to only be programmed for one county's SAME code push the down arrow again and hit select.  SAME 01 will appear on the screen.  Push your select key again.  000000  or -- --  -- --  -- --  -- -- will appear on the screen the first 0 will be flashing.  Using the SAME code for the county you want to program you will need to use the arrow keys to move the number up or down to get to your desired number.  Once the first number is entered you will need to use the right arrow key to move to the next number.  Continue with the process until you have entered each number and hit "select" and then press "menu" twice. Use the down arrow key until you reach the word CHANNEL.  Push the select key twice to get out of the menu. 

Programming multiple SAME codes

If you want to program multiple SAME codes use your up/down arrow keys to move to MULTIPLE. Press the select key.

The word SAME 01 will appear on the screen.  Hit the select key again.

000000 or -- --  -- --  -- --  -- --  will appear on the screen. The first 0 or -- will be flashing.  Using the SAME code for the first county to be programmed, you will need to use the up/down arrow keys to change the O or -- to reach the desired number.  Once the first number is entered you will need to use the right arrow key to move to the next 0 or --  and start the process over again. 

Continue until you have entered each number. Push the select key. The words SAME 01 will appear again. 

Push the up arrow key and the message will change to "SAME 02".  Push the select key. 000000 or -- --  -- --  -- --  -- -- will appear on the screen.  Enter the numbers like you just did for the second SAME code you want to program.

Continue this process until all codes have been entered.  Hit "select" and then press "menu" twice.  Next you will need to program the channel.

Programming the Correct Weather Channel on your Radio

Press the menu key. Use the down arrow key until you reach the word "CHANNEL".  Push the select key.

Using the arrow keys find the correct weather radio channel.  If you live close to the county line you might need to program an additional channel.

When you have found your correct channel hit the select key. Then press the menu key.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Now that your radio has been programmed you need to plug the AC adapter into the wall, and plug the other end of the cable into the "DC JACK" port on the back of the radio.  The batteries are used only to program the radio and in case you lose power.   Remember to change your batteries twice a year.
