Station. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during daylight hours. The 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.
Note: The Remote Control Sender transmits a signal every 3 minutes; after the batteries have been installed, the 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.

WWVB Tower Icon (indicates time reception) Weather Tendency Arrow I. WEATHER FORECAST The weather forecasting feature is estimated to be 75% accurate. The weather forecast is based solely upon the change of air pressure over time. The WS-7075U averages past air-pressure readings to provide an accurate forecast—creating a necessity to disregard all weather forecasting for 12-24 hours after the unit has been set-up, reset, or moved from one altitude to another (i.e.
the weather will be sunny). Sun with Clouds—indicates that the weather is expected to be fair (not that the weather will be sunny with clouds). Clouds with Rain—indicates that the weather is expected to get worse (not that the weather will be rainy). The weather icons change when the unit detects a change in air pressure.
The outdoor temperature is viewed in the OUTDOOR LCD. When there is more than one Remote Control Sender unit in operation, a “boxed” number will appear to the right of the temperature. This indicates which Remote Control Sender unit (1, 2, or 3) is currently displaying its data in the OUTDOOR LCD.

Station is able to receive WWVB signals from the desired location. Also, extreme and sudden changes in temperature will decrease the accuracy of the Weather Station, and changes in elevation will result with inaccurate weather forecasting for the next 12 to 24 hours. These changes will require a 12 to 24 hour wait before obtaining reliable data.
be smooth and flat. 2) Remove the protective strip from one side of the tape. Adhere the tape to the designated area on the back of the mounting bracket. 3) Remove the protective strip from the other side of the tape.
Problem: No reception of WWVB time signal. Solution: 1) Wait overnight for signal. 2) Be sure Weather Station is at least 6 feet from any electrical devices, such as televisions, computers, or other radio-controlled clocks. 3) Remove batteries for five minutes, reinsert and leave the unit alone overnight without pressing buttons.
• Extreme temperatures, vibration, and shock should be avoided to prevent damage to the units. • Clean displays and units with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use solvents or scouring agents; they may mark the displays and casings. • Do not submerge in water.
