Place your clock in a location with strong signal strength. It is recommended to locate the clock near a window facing the direction of Fort Collins, Colorado. If the clock has poor signal reception or unstable signal marks, move the clock to another location.

While the clock is receiving, press TIME SET once to go to the Time display mode. The clock continues receiving the atomic time. PressHOUR/WAVE to enter Signal Strength display.

While the clock is receiving, if you set the time or an alarm, the clock stops receiving immediately.

When receiving cannot be completed at 7 minutes after power up, the clock returns to the time display with clock '(0&- am appears and remote control (RC) receiving continues.

The clock starts to search for the WWVB signal and searches for 20 minutes after you connect it to power.

In optimal conditions, the correct time will be displayed within 10 minutes

The atomic reception tower icon will keep blinking when the clock is receiving the signal.

The static atomic reception tower indicator indicates successful reception.

The signal is at its maximum strength from 12:00 am to 3:00 am and with minimal radio

interference. In most cases, the clock will not receive and update its time until this time.
