Checking the Signal Status

and time within the last 96 hours.
The clock has not received a radio signal strong enough to set the
date and time within the last 96 hours. Reposition the clock before

The displayed time has been manually set.

The clock is receiving the radio signal and the time/date will be set
The clock is receiving a signal, but reception is not strong enough
to set the clock. Reposition or rotate the antenna bar before the
antenna symbol stops blinking (about 2 minutes).
• On very cloudy and stormy days, the signal might not be strong enough to reset
• If the clock does not receive a strong signal within about 2 minutes, it stops scan-
ning and looks for a signal again at the next preprogrammed time (see "Turning
Off Automatic Time Setting" on Page 6).
