Normally when working on any electronics project the first thing I do is grab the FCC ID. Something everything with some type of radio will have and nearly any electronic device as well. A company like Midland not having such an ID struck me as odd.
Nevertheless I started tearing into it and seeing what there was to this odd little radio.
Here is what I found
Several Test Points but no other indications
Unknown Chip With Test pads
Test pads check voltage, no indication of data
Finally, something I can play with. A Winbond flash memory chip.
A UTC petw chip used as an audio amplifier for the Alerts
