OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ATOMIC CLOCK TIME SIGNAL • This clock radio is designed to receive and decode the U.S. Atomic Clock time signal transmitted from station WWVB. This station is operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is located near Fort Collins, Colorado at latitude 40°40’...
• Under the best conditions, receiving a strong signal with no interference, the clock will take at least 5 minutes to receive and decode the signal and display the correct month, date, day, and time. If you live in an area of poor reception and high interference it could take several hours, or even overnight, for the clock to set itself correctly.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE WWVB SIGNAL RECEIVER IN CKA1100 • When the radio is connected to AC power for the first time the receiver turns ‘ On’ automatically and tries to receive the WWVB time signal. If the signal is received successfully the clock display will scroll for a few moments and then show the correct month, date, day, and time in the Eastern Zone (ZONE 01), which is the default time zone.
SETTING THE CLOCK THE FIRST TIME Location, Location, Location. Since the WWVB signal can be blocked or shielded by large metal objects, and affected by interference from other electronic devices, please do not place the radio and the external antenna in a metal cabinet, on a metal table, metal stand, or metal shelf.
• If the receiver detects the WWVB signal the SIGNAL indicator will remain ‘ On’ . When the receiver receives and decodes the complete information stream from WWVB the clock display will suddenly begin scrolling for a few seconds and then the display will show the correct Month, Date, Day, and Time in the Eastern Time Zone.
Manual Time Setting If the receiver fails to detect the WWVB signal after several tries and you do not want to wait until the reception condition improves, you may also set the time manually as follows: 1.) Set the display to the correct year. Depress the DATE/MONTH and TIME buttons together.
