NWR-SAME:
In 1994, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) began broadcasting coded emergency signals that
identify the specific geographic area (such as a county) affected
by an emergency. Until that time such specific emergency
weather information was sent in other ways to broadcast stations
and others then relayed to the public.
NOAA transmits the coded weather emergency signals using a
6
technique called SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding). The
Midland 74-200 7-channel weather/ all hazards monitor is
designed to receive these SAME transmissions.
Your Midland 74-200 can be programmed with up to 15
predefined state/county codes that will define which notices
broadcast by your NOAA weather station will cause the radio to
alert you. Warnings, watches and statements of weather and other
area emergencies, about 40 different types- will activate the radio
if one or more location code programmed into your unit is
included in the SAME message.
Also included in the SAME message is the amount of time for
which the message is effective. The 74-200 will continue to
display the alert until its time expires.
You don’t need to wait for the 74-200 to give you an alert. Just
find the NWR station broadcasting to your area from the 7
available channels. You can listen at any time, day or night to the
latest weather information from the National Weather Service.
EMERGENCY POWER
To install the emergency backup battery, turn the unit off and
disconnect it from the AC power adapter. Remove the cover by
pushing the battery door in the direction of the arrow.
7
Install a 9-volt alkaline battery (Eveready 522 or equivalent, not
supplied). Observe the battery polarity (+ and -). Replace the
battery cover. (Rechargeable batteries are not recommended
because the 74-200 will not charge the battery.)
INITIAL SETUP
Connecting power –
The AC power adapter is required for normal operation if the
radio is to be in service for more than a few hours. Plug the wall
adapter into a 110-115 Volt AC (standard house current) outlet.
Connect the cord end to the DC-12Volt power jack on the back of
the unit.
A backup battery as stated above is also recommended. The
condition of the battery is monitored by the radio. When
REPLACE BATTTERY appears on the display, the battery has
been discharged and should be replaced. Do not leave a dead or
weak battery in the radio. Do not leave a battery in the radio
when it is not in use. The battery may leak and possibly damage
your unit. Dispose of batteries properly.
Antenna The telescoping antenna on the back of the radio should be
positioned vertically and extended to its full length. In most cases
this antenna should provide good reception of your NWR
broadcast.
In some cases especially in remote areas an external antenna may
be used to improve weak reception.
8
NOTE:
The National Weather Radio service operates
Weather Broadcast systems covering a large area of the
United States. Some areas are not included. Check the
directory enclosed for weather broadcast availability.
Your 74-200 can receive broadcasts from the Weather Stations up
to 50 miles. Hills and certain terrain can reduce reception. An
external antenna can improve range. If your city is listed as
having a Weather Service Station but you do not receive it please
call your local Weather Service to confirm they are broadcasting
(Sometimes these stations are shut down for maintenance). If your
local Weather Service is transmitting and you are not receiving
the broadcasts, you may need an outdoor antenna.
What is a FIPS Code:
The NWR divides the United States and territories by state and
county (or parish) and assigns a six digit code number called a
FIPS (Federal Information Processing System) code or also
known as a NWR/SAME county code. The first digit identifies
subdivision. The next two identify the state or territory, and the
last three identify the county. For example the code for Clay
county Missouri is 029047. The“047” indicates the county, the
“29” indicates the state, and the “0” indicates the subdivision of
the county. In this case and most cases the code will have a zero
for the first digit, indicating that no subdivision is in use. The
NWS plans to introduce subdivisions of some counties in the
future, assigning digits 1 through 9 to the parts resulting in codes
9
like 529047.
Acquiring FIPS codes for Your Area:
The FIPS codes can be found by calling the NWS toll free
number
1-888-NWS-SAME
(1-888-697-7263)
Automated instructions will guide you to the numbers you
need.
The FIPS codes and much more information can be found by
way of the Internet at www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm
Note: You might want to obtain the codes for other counties
close to you or those you might frequently travel
through. The counties still must be within the coverage
area of your NWS broadcast.
This is what to expect when you call the NWS number.
You will be prompted to enter your state. We suggest
entering the entire state to expedite the process. Next you
will be prompted to enter the county. Again spell the entire
county. We suggest you locate several counties surrounding
you especially the county in the direction most of the storms
will be coming from. When you have entered the county,
the system will ask you to confirm what you entered is
correct. Be ready to write the number. The system tells you
10
the number fairly quick but you have the option to have it
read back to you so you can get the whole number.
Remember the number will be six digits long.

13
Changing the Alert Pattern
The alert tone is a high low alternating sound. The speed of the
tones depends on if the 74-200 received a watch or warning.
The alert pattern has two options available through the program
button, VOICE and ALERT. If VOICE is chosen, the alert will
sound for about 8 seconds then the voice weather broadcast will
be heard for about 5 minutes when an alert message is received. If
you desire to listen to the broadcast longer, press the
“WEATHER” bar on the front the 74-200.
If ALERT is chosen, alert tones will sound for the duration of the
alert(in some cases for several hours) or until the OFF button is
pressed. To change the pattern, press and release “DISP. MODE”
button until the display is showing WEATHER ALERT. Open the
top hatch to reveal the programming keys. Press and release the
“PROGRAM” button then “YES” to display the current alert
pattern. Press and release the “YES” button to keep that pattern
or “NO” to change it to the other option then press and release the
“YES” button to accept that option and continue with
programming or press and release the “PROGRAM” button to
return the radio to alert mode.
NOTE: Remember if there are no buttons pressed for 30 seconds
the 74-200 will go back to alert mode. To continue after the 74200 goes back to alert mode, go back to “Adjusting Weather
Frequency” to continue with programming..
FIPS Code programming:
14
NOTE: The 74-200 has enough memory to store 15 “FIPS”
codes.
The next display after VOICE/ALERT will display six numbers.
These numbers will determine the areas or counties that your 74200 will be set to respond to SAME messages. See “Acquiring
FIPS Codes for Your Area” for how and where to find the codes
for your area.
To change the first code displayed,(this will usually be “999999”
this provides all county alert in your area) press and release the
YES button to overwrite the code displayed or no to keep the
code. If you pressed YES the display will now show “_ _ _ _ _ ”.
Press and release the number buttons to enter the FIPS code you
want. When the display shows the correct number press and
release the YES button. This accepts the code you entered and
will go to the next code slot. If you make a mistake while entering
the code, press and release the NO button to clear the digits then
reenter the code. After you press and release the YES button, the
display will show “000000” if no other codes are programmed. If
there is a code in the next slot, decide if you want to keep the
code or overwrite the code (see above). If you press YES the
display will go to “_ _ _ _ _ _ “ asking for another code. Proceed
as you did for the first code. When you have entered all the
desired codes, press and release the “Program” button to store
your settings.
Reviewing stored “FIPS” codes
Enter the program mode as described earlier. When the “FIPS”
codes are displayed, press and release the “NO” button repeatedly
15
to review all memory locations you desire. All empty memory
locations will be “000000”. When finished reviewing the “FIPS”
codes press and release the program button.
ALL County Code
To cause the 74-200 to receive all SAME messages without
regard to area, enter the code “999999. Be sure there are no other
codes programmed in any other memory location.
If you have not selected a weather channel frequency for your
local area follow the instructions in “Adjusting Weather
Frequency”. To listen to the weather broadcast, press and release
the “WEATHER” bar on the front of the 74-200. Adjust the
volume for your best listening level. Press and release the
“WEATHER” bar again to mute the voice broadcast.
USING THE ALERT FUNCTION:
Setting the Alert Volume
To set the alert volume, find the alert tone volume control on the
bottom of the radio. Use a coin or small screwdriver to turn the
control clockwise for more volume or counter-clockwise for less
volume. We recommend setting the control to maximum volume
when first setting up the radio then decreasing the volume if
necessary.
Connecting the External Alert Output to an External Device
You may need to turn on or off another device when an alert is
16
received. The 74-200 provides a switch closure to signal other
devices at the EXT. ALERT jack when the radio receives an alert.
The output is compatible with home automation devices from
suppliers like X-10 and others. Connect the positive lead of the
interface to the tip of the 1 /8 inch (3.5mm) phone plug and the
negative lead to the body of the plug.
A DC powered device using 12 Volts or less and requiring less
than 300mA of current can be switched directly using the EXT.
ALERT jack. Observe the polarity of the jack so that the negative
side of the external power source is connected to the body of the
1
/8 inch (3.5mm) phone plug and the device is connected to the
positive source and to the tip of the phone plug.
The internal switch is closed when an alert is received. Pressing
the OFF button on the front of the radio will open the switch. For
best control of external devices we recommend using the ALERT
only mode as opposed to the VOICE mode.

The SAME message the NWR sends contains information, which
tells the radio the time period for which the alert is valid. The
time can be set from 15 minutes up to 6 hours. When the
designated time has passed the display message and light will be
reset to their normal state.
Reviewing Overlapping Alerts
The 74-200 radio can store up to three different alerts (with
overlapping effective times) in its memory. If the radio receives a
new alert while a previous alert is still in effect, is automatically
displays the alert description and sounds the alert for the new alert
message. To scroll backward and forward through the radio’s
memory and review all the effective alerts, press NO (to scroll
forward) or YES (to scroll backward).
When a Test or Demo Alert Occurs
NWR sends out weekly test and occasional demonstration signals
20
to let everyone with weather monitor receivers verify the
operation of their equipment.
To find out the test schedule of for your area, contact the local
NOAA or NWS office. Look for the number under US
Government, Department of Commerce.

NOTES AND
MAINTENANCE
1.
The typical weather (162MHz) reception distance will
range from 25-50 miles depending on your location and
conditions of weather, terrain, etc. Also, some Weather Stations
operate at much higher power levels than others and have their
transmitting towers on the top of high buildings or hills. For better
reception from greater distances, an external antenna can be used.
To use an external antenna, you must have an antenna with an
RCA phono plug or an adapter to RCA phono plug to connect
into the back of the 74-200. If reception in your area is not good,
check with your local dealer for assistance and ask about typical
reception range in your area. Also try different locations in your
home or office to find a place of good reception. A location near a
window is a good starting place.
2.
If Weather Stations cannot be heard on any channel,
contact your local National Weather Service office to verify that
the station is on the air and also verify the CHANNEL
(Frequency) and location of the weather station.
3.
All National Weather Service stations periodically
transmit an Alert test signal. Some broadcast only once a week
and others more often. You can always find out when the test
signal is broadcast by calling the U.S. Weather Service's phone
number for your local NOAA station.
4.
Mobile home reception is difficult due to the metallic
24
structure preventing reception. Put your 74-200 near a window. If
this doesn't provide reasonable reception-then an outside antenna
must be used. One suggested antenna is the Midland 18-259W
VHF through-glass antenna. This antenna must be used on single
pane windows only.
12 VOLT OPERATION
Your 74-200 can be powered from any 12-Volt CAR-TRUCKRV or BOAT battery. An optional (Model 18-235) power cord
adapter is available from Midland or your local dealer.
