RADIO WAVE CONTROLLED WATCH

6About this radio wave controlled watch

This watch receives calibration signal and automatically updates the time and date.

6Transmitter GERMANY

Signal code : DCF77

Location : Mainflingen Germany (located 25 Km southeast of Frankfurt)

U.K

Signal code : MSF

Location : Rugby city (located near from London) U.S.A

Signal code : WWVB

Location : FortCollins in Colorado (located 100Km north of Denver)

JAPAN

Signal code : JJY

Location : Mt.Haganeyama (located 45Km southwest of Fukuoka)

The signal usually operates 24 hours of a day, but it may be temporarily interrupted for maintenance and lightning cuntermeasure.

6Radio wave reception zone

This watch can receive radio waves within a radius of about 1,000km from the standard radio wave station. However, the coverage can vary depending on time, season, weather conditions, local environmental conditions, etc.

Which way to point the watch during reception

6 How to successfully receive radio waves

It may be difficult to receive radio waves when metal shielding blocks the watch. When inside a ferroconcrete building etc., try to place the watch near a window that is as close as possible to facing the radio wave station.

Try not to move the watch during radio wave reception.

Good reception can be achieved if you aim the reception antenna (on the upper side of the watch) toward the radio wave station.

You can check signal strength by looking at the reception mark that is displayed during radio wave reception. If you find a place and a direction to aim the watch in advance that has stable reception, that will help to get a good connection.

Weak radio waves

Strong radio waves

 

 

 

*The watch may fail to receive radio waves or may receive them inaccurately near (within 10km from) the standard radio wave station. In this case, change the direction of the antenna by 45 - 90 degrees or receive radio waves again at a place far (10km or farther) from the standard wave station.

*Sometimes when the watch indicates strong radio wave reception, it still may not be able to receive a signal due to surrounding environmental interference such as electrical noise.

*The maximum time required to receive a complete signal can be up to 13 minutes. It may change depending on distance from the standard radio wave station, time, season, weather, etc.

6 Places where it may be difficult to receive radio waves

Places with extremely high or low temperatures.

Inside ferroconcrete buildings, underground, inside high-rise buildings, in valleys between mountains, etc.

Inside vehicles, trains, and airplanes.

Places that tend to have electrical noise such as near high voltage cables, electric train cables, and near airports.

Near home appliances such as televisions, refrigerators, computers, fax machines, inverter fluorescent lights, OA machines, and operating cellular phones.

*The watch operates using its built-in quartz accuracy under conditions of poor reception. When it returns to a reception area and receives radio waves, the watch displays the correct time. The watch operates using its built-in quartz accuracy between signal reception cycles.

AUTOMATIC RECEPTION

If you receive radio waves properly, the time and date are adjusted automatically.

• The watch automatically receives radio waves a maximum of two times a day.

During the daylight saving time period, if the watch receives the radio waves normally, it

 

automatically displays the SUM. If it receives the radio waves normally after the DST

 

period, it automatically displays the ordinary time.

 

• Since the DST is automatically corrected, you do not need to correct it, as long as the

 

watch receives radio waves. In a district where the DST is not applied, however, you are

 

required to correct the DST manually.

Push to complete adjustment. The hands are moved forward until they are set to the time of the digital section.

8. BATTERY REPLACEMENT

When the display dims, replace the battery as soon as possible.After battery replacement, please make sure to short two pattern on module, and reset hands initial position refering to "7.CHECK AND RESET HANDS INITIAL POSITION".
