FEATURES
Your RadioShack Weatheradio with Alert is the next
generation of weather alert technology. Your Weatheradio uses SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) circuitry to provide more complete information
about weather conditions in your immediate area,
letting you avoid hearing alerts for geographical areas that do not interest you.
Your Weatheradio’s features include:
SAME Operation — lets you program as many as
two different geographical codes into the Weatheradio’s memory, so the Weatheradio sounds an alert
only when a weather emergency is declared in any
of those locations.
Audible Alert — the Weatheradio sounds a built-in
siren when it detects emergency weather situations.
7 Weather Channels — let you select the frequency for your local National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) weather broadcasts.
Selectable Alert Function — lets you set the
Weatheradio so it sounds an alert then automatically sounds the accompanying NOAA broadcast when
it receives a weather emergency broadcast. You
can also set the Weatheradio so it sounds only the
alert, letting you manually tune the NOAA broadcast.
5
12-251.fm Page 6 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Alert Indicator Lights — the Weatheradio’s display
clearly shows whether a received alert is a statement, watch, warning, or emergency.
Battery Backup — the Weatheradio uses a 9-volt
battery (not supplied) for backup power if AC power
fails or is temporarily disconnected.
Alert Volume Control — lets you adjust the volume
of the siren so you will be sure to hear it.
We recommend you record your Weatheradio’s serial number here. The number is on the bottom of the
radio.

HOW YOUR RADIO WORKS
Traditional weather radios simply receive NOAA’s
weather broadcast (usually within a 50-mile radius)
then sound an alarm if any emergency code was
transmitted along with the broadcast. This means
that people who live outside an affected area are often alerted even when their area is not affected,
causing many of them to ignore potentially real
weather warnings that can save lives.
In 1994, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) began broadcasting coded signals called FIPS (Federal Information Processing
System) codes along with their standard weather
broadcasts from stations in your area. These codes
identify the type of emergency and the specific geographic area (such as a county) affected by the
emergency. Your Weatheradio receives, interprets,
and displays information about the codes so you
can determine if the emergency might affect your area. Only SAME-compatible weather radios (such
as this Weatheradio) are able to take advantage
of this new technology.
Each FIPS code identifies a specific geographic
area (defined by the National Weather Service), so
your Weatheradio sounds an alert only when a
weather emergency is declared in that area. This
helps you more efficiently track the weather conditions in and around your area.
8
12-251.fm Page 9 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
WHEN A WEATHER ALERT
OCCURS
When the Weatheradio receives a weather alert:
• it sounds the built-in siren
• an indicator on the front of the Weatheradio
lights
Warning: The NWS uses sophisticated weather
models to determine an alert’s effective time. However, the end of an alert does not necessarily mean
that the related weather emergency is over.
UNDERSTANDING FIPS CODES
For the purpose of broadcasting weather information, the NWS has divided the United States into regions by state and county (or parish, where
applicable) then assigned a 6-digit FIPS code to
identify each county or parish. For example, the
code for Tarrant County, Texas, is 048439.
9
12-251.fm Page 10 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
The first digit in a FIPS
code identifies the
county
subdivision,
the next two digits
identify the state, and
the last three digits
identify the county or
parish.
State
048439
County/
Parish
County Subdivision
Note: Most FIPS codes begin with 0, which means
the code represents an entire county. The NWS,
however, plans to eventually subdivide some large
counties. When that happens, each subdivision will
be assigned a digit from 1–9, resulting in codes
such as 148439, 248439, and so on.
Your Weatheradio can receive all SAME alert signals broadcast within about a 50-mile radius of
where you installed it. To receive SAME alerts and
broadcasts about weather occurring only in particular counties within that area, you can program up to
two FIPS codes into the Weatheradio’s memory. For
example, this lets you avoid hearing an alert that applies to an area within a 50-mile radius but not necessarily to your county or parish.
10
12-251.fm Page 11 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Obtaining Your Area’s FIPS Code(s)
To obtain the FIPS code for the location where you
installed your Weatheradio, contact your local RadioShack store or call the NWS toll free at 1-888NWR-SAME (1-888-697-7263). If you call the NWS,
follow the instructions you hear.
Note: If you are close to a county or parish line, you
might want to obtain the codes for the nearby counties or parishes.
Hint: Since you can program up to two FIPS codes
into the Weatheradio’s memory, you might want to
obtain the code for another local area that you frequently travel through (as long as both areas are
within a 50 mile radius of your location and within an
area covered by your local NWS broadcast station).
That way, you can program the code into the
Weatheradio and receive broadcasts covering that
location, too.

12-251.fm Page 12 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
PREPARATION
POWERING THE WEATHERADIO
Your Weatheradio uses standard AC power for normal operation and requires one 9-volt battery (not
supplied) for backup power when AC power fails or
is temporarily disconnected. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend a RadioShack alkaline battery.
Cautions:
• Use only a fresh battery of the required size
and recommended type.
• Do not use a rechargeable battery in your
Weatheradio.
Connecting AC Power
If the Weatheradio’s display is on, rotate VOLUME
toward OFF until it clicks to turn off the Weatheradio.
Then plug the Weatheradio’s power cord into a standard AC outlet.
12
12-251.fm Page 13 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Caution: Your Weatheradio’s power cord has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). If
you have difficulty inserting the plug into the outlet,
do not force it! Turn the plug over and try again.
Installing the Backup Battery
1. If the Weatheradio’s display is on, rotate VOLUME toward OFF until it clicks to turn off the
Weatheradio.
2. Press the tab on the battery compartment
cover, then lift up the cover to remove it.
3. Snap a 9V battery onto the battery terminals
inside the compartment, then place the battery
inside.
4. Replace the cover.
When the LOW BATT indicator on the front of the
Weatheradio lights, replace the battery.
13
12-251.fm Page 14 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and
properly. Do not burn or bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the Weatheradio
for several months, remove the battery. Batteries
can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
Note: The Weatheradio maintains all settings for up
to (please add) minutes if the battery is removed or
dead and AC power is disconnected. If power is removed for a longer period of time, you must re-enter
all settings.
USING THE BUILT-IN ANTENNA
The Weatheradio’s built-in telescoping antenna lets
you receive strong local signals. To use the built-in
antenna, lift it up so it is vertical, then fully extend it.
14
12-251.fm Page 15 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
CHOOSING A LOCATION FOR
THE WEATHERADIO
You can set your Weatheradio on a flat surface
(such as a shelf or counter top).
For the best reception, place your Weatheradio
where:
• it can receive alert signals (see “When a Test or
Demo Alert Occurs” on Page 26)
• you can hear its alert tone (see “Setting the
Alert Volume” on Page 24)
Once you determine a location that meets these two
conditions, leave the Weatheradio there for the best
protection.
Note: Make sure the Weatheradio is away from obstructions such as metal cabinets or bookshelves.
(Higher frequencies are noticeably affected by obstructions.) Do not place the Weatheradio near any
metal surface such as a refrigerator, a metal door or
wall, or a water pipe hidden behind a wall. This
greatly reduces the Weatheradio’s ability to receive
signals.
15
12-251.fm Page 16 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
PROGRAMMING THE
WEATHERADIO
Your Weatheradio is preprogrammed to receive
broadcasts for all FIPS codes, and is preprogrammed with the seven national NOAA broadcast
frequencies (Channels 1–7).
The first time you use your Weatheradio, it is automatically set to use the NOAA weather broadcast
frequency 162.400 MHz (Channel 1) and receive all
SAME alert signals broadcast within a 50-mile radius of where you installed it.
Depending on your location, you might need to select a different channel and enter one or two FIPS
codes into the Weatheradio.
Notes:
• To stop programming the Weatheradio at any
time during the steps described in this section,
set PROGRAM/OPERATE to OPERATE. The
Weatheradio saves any valid entries you made.
• The Weatheradio will not receive a weather
alert while you program it.

Note: If you receive a NOAA broadcast on
more than one channel, the one with the best
reception might not be the one broadcasting
information for your location. Contact your local
RadioShack store or the NWS to find out which
frequency NOAA is using to broadcast from the
station nearest your location, then select that
channel.
4. When you hear the channel you want, press
CONFIRM. The weather broadcast stops, the
Weatheradio beeps, and L, 1, –, and the FIPS
code stored in the first memory location flash.
5. Set PROGRAM/OPERATE to OPERATE.
Note: If you do not press a button for 45 seconds, the Weatheradio automatically switches
to operate mode. Set PROGRAM/OPERATE
back to OPERATE and start over at Step 2.
18
12-251.fm Page 19 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Storing/Changing FIPS Codes
You can store or change FIPS codes in the Weatheradio’s memory (to narrow the area for which you
receive SAME alerts). Your Weatheradio has two
memory locations for FIPS codes.
1. Follow Steps 1–4 under “Selecting a Broadcast
Frequency” on Page 17.
2. To change the FIPS code in the first memory
location, press SCROLL. The first digit of the
first FIPS code stored in the Weatheradio
appears.
Or, hold down CONFIRM for about 2 seconds to
skip the FIPS code in the first memory location,
then skip to Step 5.
3. Repeatedly press or hold down SCROLL until
the first digit of the FIPS code changes to the
one you want, then press CONFIRM. A dash (–)
appears.
If you enter the wrong digit, press CLEAR to
clear it.
19
12-251.fm Page 20 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
4. Repeat Step 3 to change each digit of the FIPS
code. When you have entered the last digit of
the FIPS code, the Weatheradio sounds a confirmation tone and saves the new FIPS code.
5. If you just saved the FIPS code in the first memory location, L, 2, –, and the FIPS code stored
in the second memory location flash. If necessary, repeat Steps 2–4 to enter a FIPS code in
the second memory location.
6. When you have stored both FIPS codes, the
Weatheradio sounds a confirmation tone. Then,
codes appear that confirm the Weatheradio’s
current settings.
For example, if you previously set the Weatheradio to use Channel 4 and stored a FIPS
code of 413540 in the first memory location and
a FIPS code of 425763 in the second memory
location, the following characters appear in
sequence:
C4L1
–
413540L2
–
425763
When you finish, set PROGRAM/OPERATE to
OPERATE.
20
12-251.fm Page 21 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
TESTING THE WEATHERADIO
For your Weatheradio to be effective, you must
place it where it can receive an emergency alert
broadcast and where you can hear its alert tone.
In the United States, the NWS broadcasts a test
alert every week on Wednesday between 11 AM
and 1 PM. To find out the specific test schedule in
your area, contact your local NOAA or NWS office.
These offices are usually listed in the telephone
book under “US Government, Department of Commerce.”
Important: The fact that you get clear reception of a
weather broadcast signal does not guarantee that
an emergency alert broadcast will trigger your
Weatheradio’s alert function. Be sure you choose
the proper location for the Weatheradio (see
“Choosing a Location for the Weatheradio” on
Page 15) and regularly check the Weatheradio to be
sure it is operating properly (see “When a Test or
Demo Alert Occurs” on Page 26).
21
12-251.fm Page 22 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
OPERATION
To turn on the Weatheradio, turn VOLUME to the
right until it clicks.
Note: VOLUME also controls the Weatheradio’s audio broadcast volume. To set the alert volume, see
“Setting the Alert Volume” on Page 24.
To listen to a weather broadcast, see “Listening to a
Weather Broadcast.”
To adjust the tone you hear when the Weatheradio
sounds an alert, see “Setting the Alert Volume” on
Page 24.
To change the way in which the Weatheradio responds to an alert, see “Changing/Checking the
Alert Pattern” on Page 24.
To turn off the Weatheradio, rotate VOLUME to the
left until it clicks.
LISTENING TO A WEATHER
BROADCAST
Your Weatheradio is preprogrammed with the seven
NOAA weather broadcast frequencies (Channels 1–
7). To select a frequency broadcast in your area, fol22
12-251.fm Page 23 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
low the steps in “Selecting a Broadcast Frequency”
on Page 17.
To listen to a weather broadcast,
make sure PROGRAM/OPERATE is
set to OPERATE, press WEATHER,
then adjust VOLUME to the desired
listening level. To turn off the
weather broadcast, press WEATHER again.
USING THE ALERT FUNCTION
When the NWS broadcasts a warning, watch, or
statement, the Weatheradio sounds an alert tone,
and the STATEMENT (if the broadcast is a statement), WATCH (if the broadcast is a watch), or
WARNING (if the broadcast is a warning or emergency) indicators light.
Warning: If severe weather threatens, do not wait
for an alert tone; turn on the weather broadcast and
monitor the weather information.
23
12-251.fm Page 24 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
Setting the Alert Volume
To set your Weatheradio’s alert volume, rotate
TONE toward HIGH to increase the volume or toward
LOW to decrease it.
We recommend you set the alert volume to the highest volume setting, then decrease it as needed.
Changing/Checking the Alert Pattern
You can set TONE/VOICE (on the back) to have the
Weatheradio respond to an NWS alert broadcast in
one of two ways.
VOICE — the Weatheradio sounds an alert for
about 8 seconds, then automatically turns on the
weather (voice) broadcast for 5 minutes or until the
NWS transmits an ending sequence, whichever
comes first. An alert could be in effect for several
hours.
To turn off the alert and continue to listen to the
NWS broadcast, press WEATHER.
24
12-251.fm Page 25 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
TONE — the Weatheradio sounds an alert. To turn
off the alert and turn on the NWS broadcast, press
WEATHER.
Notes:
• The STATEMENT, WATCH, or WARNING indicators on the front of the Weatheradio light in
either alert pattern setting.
• See “Setting the Alert Volume” on Page 24 for
more information about adjusting the Weatheradio’s alert tone.
Using the Weatheradio’s ‘All Signals’
Code
Your Weatheradio is preset to use a default “all signals” code of 99, which lets it receive any weather
alert broadcast within the Weatheradio’s reception
range (about a 50-mile radius in most locations).
This code is preset in the Weatheradio’s first memory location.
To set the Weatheradio to respond only to specific
NWS FIPS codes you select, choose the codes (as
many as two) you want to program (see “Understanding FIPS Codes” on Page 9 and “Obtaining
Your Area’s FIPS Code(s)” on Page 11), then pro25
12-251.fm Page 26 Tuesday, March 14, 2000 12:40 PM
gram those codes into the first and second memory
locations (see “Storing/Changing FIPS Codes” on
Page 19).
When a Test or Demo Alert Occurs
The NWS sends out weekly test signals you can use
to confirm that your Weatheradio is working properly. To find out the specific test schedule in your area,
contact your local NOAA or NWS office. Those offices are usually listed in the telephone book under
US Government, Department of Commerce.
When the Weatheradio’s alert function is turned on
and the Weatheradio receives a test broadcast for a
FIPS code you programmed into its memory, it responds in one of these ways.

PROPERTY, REVENUE, OR PROFIT OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF RadioShack HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or
the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or
exclusions may not apply to you.
In the event of a product defect during the warranty period, take the product and
the RadioShack sales receipt as proof of purchase date to any RadioShack
store. RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise provided by law:
(a) correct the defect by product repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the product with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is
made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and
products may be used in the performance of warranty service. Repaired or replaced parts and products are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made
after the expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to
acts of God, abuse, accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or maintenance, alteration, lightning or
other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs other than those
provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as
fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs of product removal, installation, set-up service adjustment or reinstallation.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights
which vary from state to state.
