SAME Weather Radios
SAME weather alert radios feature Specific Area Message Encoding. With this advanced technology, weather radios can be set to only notify users to alerts for their specific area (i.e., county). Normal weather radios without this feature will play all warnings within the broadcast area of the regional weather radio station; this area could be as large as 5-10 counties. Radios without SAME technology will therefore warn users to events that are not relevant to the area in which they live or work leading to "false alarms". The SAME technology works by having the user set the weather radio to the specific area (i.e., county) of interest. You can find your county's SAME code here.
