S.A.M.E. weather alert on Pro 92/1067 and Pro 94/1052

Post by Jim Keelin » Sat, 26 Aug 2000 04:00:00

Can anyone explain what messages are displayed for the SAME weather alert
feature on the Pro-92/1067 and/or the Pro-94/1052.

The display on my weather alert radio indicates if it is a watch or warning
and what type of watch or warning (tornado, thunderstorm etc.); also how
many warnings/watches there are and how many hours and minutes until it
expires. Do any of the above scanners display any or all of this
information. Thanks in advance.

Jim,
    The display works somewhat like your weather radio. First, you have to
press the function button then the wx button to get into the S.A.M.E. mode.
What that does is, it puts the radio in the standy monitoring the weather
for the same tones and codes. When your scanner receives those tones and
codes it displays  what the warning is, (I.E., Tornado Warning, Severe
Thunderstorm Warning or Watch, ect.) but it does not state for what county
or the time remaining or anything else. Also, while you are in this mode to
receive the same messages and display, you cannot monitor anything else. So,
if you wanted to listen to the local agencies, and still receive the same
messages, then you cannot. Maybe that makes heads or tails out of that. If I
can be any further help, please let me know.

you can make your local weather frequency your priority then the scanner would
check for the 1050 mhz tone while scanning other stuff
