Uniden VHF radio weather alert problem

I have two different Uniden VHF radio models that seem to have the same problem. The S.A.M.E. weather alert function does not work correctly. Instead of alerting only on my county code alerts, it alerts for every county within range. I have confirmed with Uniden that it is programmed correctly and both radios have been "repaired" or replaced. My models are UM525 and the Voyager.
I am curious to know if any other boater has experienced this problem with their Uniden VHF Marine radio?
I am starting to believe that I am the only one who has ever used the SAME codes on a Uniden VHF radio!

I have the 525 also but have not programmed the code into the radio.The radio has lots of programmed features so it is a bit complicated. Some day I will try it. I listen to channel 16 and hear the Coast Guard issue storm warnings. Thinking about your situation it might not be such a bad idea hearing nearby county alerts.
