Scientific Oregon atomic clock not synchronized and time zone settings
Most Oregon Scientific Clocks have a function to turn on or compel the clock to look for the RCC pulse. By default, to compel the watch to look for the RCC output, pressing and holding the "up" or "+" key for 2 - 3 seconds will compel the watch to do so.
A hint that the atomic clock pulse is activated and the search for the pulse is the Oregon Scientific pulse symbol, which looks like a blinking oh part. To select the time zones on most Oregon Scientific watches, press and hold the Mode or Clock key for 2-3 seconds to accept the time setting.
Usually the first adjustment of the clock is the time area. You can use the up/down or +/- keys to switch to the proper time area. Timezone display will vary. Oregon Scientific watches display the time with the first character of the time area. For other watches, the time regions are given numbers (0 = Pacific, 1 = Mount, 2 = Center, 3 = East).
Once the time zones have been chosen, leave the time adjustment modes to be set to timeout without touching any keys (about 30 seconds) and the watch will revert to the home page. Notice: For some watches the time area is the last adjustment, e.g. e.g. in the case of the RC938. If the time area is the last set in the clock setup, repeat (do not hold) the fashion or clock key to scroll through each clock setup until you arrive at the time area.
Choose the right time area. American atomic signals are coming from Ft. Collins Colorado. Once the head unit is receiving the atomic (RF) radiation, move the head control close to a screen. Once the probe is receiving the HF transmitter, try to move the probe to another place to pick up the atomic clock beep.
The majority of devices offer a procedure for introducing the atomic clock pulse signals. Best time to pick up a beep is during the night time. Receiving a single pulse can take up to 24hrs. In order to restore the device, push the button that is normally found on the back of the watch or in the batteries case.
