Your radio may be functioning normally for the emergency alert. Here is an excerpt from the user guide:

Emergency Alert Mode

The Emergency Alert feature can be used to signal members in your

group of your need for urgent help. MR series radios will operate in an

automatic "hands-free" emergency control mode for a total of 30

seconds after activating the Emergency Alert. MR series radios in your

group will automatically advance the speaker volume to the maximum

setting and sound a warbling alert tone for 8 seconds. The alert tone is

emitted from your own radio speaker and the receiving radios in your

group. After the 8 second alert, any spoken words or incidental sounds at

your end will be transmitted to the group for 22 seconds. For the 30

second duration of Emergency Alert mode, MR series radio controls and

buttons will be locked to maximize reception of the emergency message.

1. Press and hold the Emergency Alert button for 3 seconds.

2. Release the button after the LED Indicator glows red and the alert tone

begins to sound. There is no need to continue to hold the Emergency

Alert button or use PTT for your message to be transmitted.

3. After the alert tone ends you may speak into the microphone. Your

voice or incidental sounds will be transmitted. The LED indicator will

continue to glow for the duration of the 22 second period.

4. After 30 seconds your radio speaker will emit a Talk Confirmation

Tone and the LED Indicator will extinguish. Operation then returns to
normal two-way mode.

Note: All Motorola Talkabout EM, MJ, and MR series radios are fully

compatible with the Emergency Alert feature. Radios other than EM, MJ,

MR series can receive the emergency alert signal, but will not respond

with adjusted volume settings, locked controls, or a warbling alert tone.

Users of other radio models set to the same channel and Interference

Eliminator Code will hear a steady tone for 8 seconds followed by the

voice transmission for 22 seconds.

Warning: The Emergency Alert feature should only be used in the event

of an actual emergency. Motorola is not responsible if there is no
response to the emergency alert from the receiving group.

The alert is to loud, how can I turn down the volume for the alert?


Press the WEATHER/SNOOZE button to turn on the weather radio. Then press the "UP" or
"DOWN" volume button to select desired listening level. (Note: Turning the volume all the way
down [where no bars show] puts the radio into silent mode.)

Hope that helps resolve the issue.

How do i program my eton fr 800 radio to come on automatically. Thank you.


  • To get your alert radio to come on when there is a weather alert first you needed to find the right NOAH frequency to turn on automatically to.
  1. Extend the antenna fully.
  2. Turn on the radio.
  3. .Press the "WB" button at the top of the radio.
  4. Turn up the volume and press the ^ or v button to cycle through all 7 of the weather channels.
  5. WB and CH will appear at the top of the display., with 1-7 next to CH.
  6. Select the strongest channel you can hear (if you can hear more than one channel. Usually only one channel is heard).
  7. The strongest one is the broadcast from your area.
  8. Now adjust the volume you want the radio to turn on in the event of an emergency.

  • Now once you have the weather frequency set for the radio to turn on to, we need to make it able come turn on in an emergency.
  1. Press the ALERT/WB button at the top of the radio.
  2. The alert light shines in the upper left corner of the radio.
  3. The audio will disappear but the radio is still on.
  4. It will monitor Noah until an emergency occurs and at that point a siren or a voice will alert you. Then you press the WB button to hear the alert.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.
