information about the relationship between city codes and transmitters, see
"Important!" under "Time Calibration Signal Reception" and "Transmitters".
• See the maps under "Approximate Reception Ranges" for information about the

on auto receive for these city codes, see "To turn auto receive on and off".
Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to
six times a day (five times a day for the Chinese calibration signal). When any auto
receive is successful, the remaining auto receive operations are not performed for that
day. For more information, see "About Auto Receive".
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press of a
button. For more information, see "To perform manual receive".
