INITIAL SET UP:
Adapter on the main unit with batteries or a/c adapter and set the time zone & weather icon: The Time Zone will flash EST. Press and release the UP or DOWN button to
select the Time Zone. Press and release the SET button.
The Weather Forecast Icons will flash. Press and release the UP or DOWN
button to select the forecast Icon that represents your current local weather. Press and release the SET button to confirm.
The Temperature area will flash as the display searches for a signal from
the outdoor transmitter.
Insert fresh alkaline batteries into the transmitter, observing the correct
polarity Press the TX button to send a signal after the display is powered up. Keep the transmitter 5-10 feet from the weather station.
Within 3 minutes the station will beep and the outdoor temperature should be
displayed on the Weather station. If the outdoor temperature is not displayed after 3 minutes hold the SEARCH button on the main unit to search for outdoor sensor. Then press the TX button again on the sensor to send signal. If that doesn’t work, remove power from both units and start again from the beginning.
To ensure sufficient 434 MHz transmission, the outdoor transmitter should be
placed a distance of no more than 200 feet (60 meters, open air) from the Color Weather station.

WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED TIME
The NIST radio station, WWVB, is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado and transmits the exact time signal continuously throughout the United States at 60 kHz. The signal can be received up to 2,000 miles away through the internal antenna in the atomic weather station. However, due to the nature o f the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during daylight hours. The atomic weather station will search for a signal every night when reception is best. The WWVB radio station derives its signal from the NIST atomic weather station in Boulder, Colorado. A team of atomic physicists continually measures every second of every day to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second a day. These physicists have created an international standard, measuring a second as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium 133 atom in a vacuum. This atomic weather station regulates the WWVB transmitter.
WWVB RECEPTION icon with full signal strength will appear on screen if the reception of atomic time is successful. The atomic weather station will have a daily synchronization at 02:03 and 03:03 everyday. Each reception cycle is minimum
2.5 minutes and maximum 10 minutes. In normal mode, press the RCC button until the reception icon appears to enforce searching of radio-controlled clock signal. If this icon disappears afterwards, radio time signal is not available at the moment.
