SEIKO RADIO CONTROLLED

"R-WAVE" clocks are extremely accurate due to their ability to receive
radio signals from the most accurate clock in the world, the cesium
atomic clock maintained by the National Institute of Standards in Fort
Collins, Colorado. This atomic clock is so accurate it keeps time to within
one second in one million years. Seiko R-Wave clocks also automatically
adjust for daylight savings time.

 

R-WAVE ZONES

Continental United States, parts of Southern Canada and Northern
Mexico. Geographic features, weather disturbances and structural
characteristics may affect reception. Signal reception is strongest during
night time.

 
 
 

LOCATION OF THE CLOCK

Place the clock near a window and in an area in your home or office
where you receive good radio reception.

Avoid placing the clock near electrical devices such as personal
computers, radios, TV's, satellite dishes, air conditioners, etc. Also, avoid
light dimmer switches and appliances with electric motors such as
dishwashers, refrigerators and washing machines. These devices may
interfere with the reception of the signal.

    tower and wave icon.

When there is radio frequency interference, the clock may be
unable to obtain communication link and can only return to the
normal condition when the interference stops.

STANDARD TIME / DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

  • The clock will change to the standard time / daylight savings time
    automatically when the time signal is received. The display will

POOR RECEPTION

  • If for some reason your clock does not set itself automatically within
    24 hours, it is probably due to poor reception. This is normally a
    temporary condition. Try another location in the room or move to
    another room. If possible, locate the clock near a window. If you
    would like to set the clock manually while waiting for the automatic
    time setting, follow the manual setting instructions.
