S75617 - YES
• The station will search for the atomic signal at UTC 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00.
• If there is no WWVB reception, the station will search for the atomic time signal every 2 hours until the WWVB time is received.
• The atomic time signal icon will flash while searching. The tower icon will be solid when it has connected.
• From normal time display, press the SET button to search for the WWVB time signal.
• Please be sure you have selected your time zone from the list in the Settings menu.
• When the Atomic time signal is received, the station will set to the time zone selected. The default is Eastern Time.
• The WWVB time signal can be received up to 2,000 miles away from Boulder Colorado. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during daylight hours. The Radio-controlled display will search for a signal every night when reception is best.
• Allow up to 5 nights for the change from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time and vice-versa to occur, depending on your location and atmospheric conditions.
In the case of a loss of the WWVB signal, follow these steps:
1. Check for a Tower Icon showing on the display near the time. The tower icon indicates
successful reception of the WWVB signal in the past 24-hours.
2. Check that the Weather Station is in the correct Time Zone. This station offers seven time
zones listed in letter format (default is EST):
3. Check that ATOMIC is ON. This must be ON to receive a WWVB atomic time signal.
4. Check that the DST indicator is ON. If the indicator is OFF the weather station will not
change into or out of Daylight Saving Time.
5. Position station with front or back facing Fort Collins, Colorado so the widest part of the
antenna is positioned to receive.
