ABOUT WWVB (radio-controlled time)
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology-Time and Frequency Division) 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 indoor weather station. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during daylight hours. The indoor weather station will search for a signal every night when reception is best. The WWVB radio station derives its signal from the NIST Atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. A team of atomic physicists continually measure 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. For more informa-

QUICK SET-UP GUIDE
Hint:
Use good quality Alkaline Batteries and avoid rechargeable batteries.
1. Have the indoor weather station and remote thermo/hygro sensor 3 to 5 apart.
2. Batteries should be out of both units for 15 minutes.
3. Place the batteries into the remote thermo/hygro sensor first then into the in­door weather station. (All remote thermo/hygro sensors must be started before the indoor weather station)
4. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS FOR 15 MINUTES.
In this time the indoor weather station and remote thermo/hygro sensor will start to talk to each other and the indoor weather station will show both the indoor tempera­ture and humidity and the outdoor temperature and humidity. If the indoor weather station does not display all values after the 15 minutes please retry the set up as stated above. After all values are displayed for 15 minutes you can place your re­mote thermo/hygro sensor outdoors and set your time.
The remote thermo/hygro sensor should be placed in a dry, shaded area. The re­mote thermo/hygro sensor has a range of 330 feet. Any walls that the signal will have to pass through will reduce distance. An outdoor wall or window will have 20 to 30 feet of resistance and an interior wall will have 10 to 20 feet of resistance. Your distance plus resistance should not exceed 330 ft. in a straight line.
NOTE:
Fog and mist will not harm your remote thermo/hygro sensor but direct rain
must be avoided.
To complete the set up of your indoor weather station after the 15 minutes have passed please follow the steps in the Detailed Set Up Guide.
Note:
The remote thermo/hygro sensor transmits a signal every 3 minutes; after the batteries have been installed, the indoor weather station will search for the signal for a duration of 5 minutes. If there is no temperature reading in the OUTDOOR LCD after 5 minutes, make sure the units are within range of each other, or repeat the battery installation procedure.

should be permanently mounted only after the signal reception has been verified.
A. Remote Temperature and Humidity Sensor
1. Pull the cylindrical rain cover off the transmitter.
2. Remove the battery cover (located on the backside of the transmitter, above the mounting post and bracket). Press the arrow and slide the battery cover off.
3. Observing the correct polarity install 2 Alkaline AA batteries.
4. Replace battery cover, and place rain cover snugly onto the transmitter.

I. Battery Installation
Batteries will fit tightly. To avoid start-up problems, make sure that the batteries do not spring free. Also be sure to insert alkaline batteries into the remote thermo/hygro sensor first, then the indoor weather station. Initial set up should be done with the remote thermo/hygro sensor and indoor weather station in the same room. The units

1. Remove the battery cover (the cover has white writing on it).
2. Observe the correct polarity, and install three Alkaline AA batteries.

3. Do not press any buttons for at least ten minutes. If a button is pressed before the indoor weather station has received information from the TX4U sensor, no data will be received from that sensor until reset.
4. Replace the battery cover.
II. Start Up Sequence A. Initial Start
1. Immediately after the batteries have been installed, the indoor weather station will sound a “beep”, and the LCD will completely light up for a brief moment.
2. All information will then appear in normal mode, with “12:00” as the default time and “TH.1” as the default date (2004 as the year).
3. The indoor temperature and humidity, and barometric air pressure (as 29.91 inHg relative RH) will also be displayed.
4. There is a “satellite” icon that appears in the bottom portion of the LCD, between the outdoor temperature and humidity - this icon informs the user that the indoor weather station is looking for signals from the remote thermo/hygro sensor. Within five minutes the remote temperature and humidity should be displayed-if not, remove batteries from all units and repeat battery installation, the remote tem­perature sensor first, then the indoor weather station.
B. WWVB Reception
1. Once the batteries are installed in the Weather Center, it will automatically search for the WWVB signal. If it receives a good signal (which is unlikely during daylight hours in most locations), the WWVB reception indicator (looks like a tower icon) will flash. The indoor weather station requires five full minutes of good reception to successfully capture the signal and set to the correct hour, minute, second, month, day and year. If the signal reception is not successful within ten minutes, the signal search will be cancelled and will automatically resume every two hours until the signal is successfully captured.
2. The signal is sent from Ft. Collins, Colorado only and is similar to an AM radio signal. Atmospheric interferences such as storms, sunspots, and even sunlight will cause the signal to not travel as far.
3. To maximize reception, place the indoor weather station in a window facing Colorado, at least six feet from any electrical source (computers, televisions, refrigerators, etc.). Do not move the indoor weather station while it is searching for the signal.
4. The time and date can be manually set. Once the signal is captured, it will over­ride any time and date set to the time zone selected.
5. Once the time and date are set, the indoor weather station will conduct a search every night at midnight and correct to the accurate time and date (Daylight Sav­ing Time is automatic). If the signal has been received in the past 24 hours, the reception indicator will be displayed.

IV. Function Key Layout
A. The below picture shows the five function keys used in programming and opera-
tion of your indoor weather station
V. Program Mode
The program mode is laid out in a manner that allows you to program each function separately, or you can follow the instructions entirely to program the indoor weather center. Complete programming is usually done for the initial set-up, and will require you to skip step 1,2 and 3 of each programming section. The programming mode can be exited at any time by either pressing the “Snooze/CH” button, or waiting for the 15-second time-out to take effect.
