Changing Time Zone on Wind & Weather Atomic Clock

I received a wind & weather atomic clock a 3 or 4 years ago. I know it is not the product listed here, but i was hoping for any help.

I am trying to set up the time on it, and it is set for Pacific Time Zone (we live in central). how do i change the time zone?

the only buttons on the front are +,-,mode,channel, and alarm. The only info i can find on the back is an FCC ID - Q9PPCR325W. any help would be appreciated!

    I just tried using these suggested instructions and it worked to some degree. The only puzzling thing that I found is that I am in "Eastern" time zone, and if I set it to that zone on the display map, it bumps up the time by two hours. However, when I set it to the "Mountain" time zone it sets the time to my actual time zone. Interesting. Oh well....hope this helps.... two years later :)

Manual for SkyScan atomic clock -model 86742 I need to know how to change the clock to eastern time.


Hello

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock

With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.

If you press and hold the set button on the back for 3 seconds you should be able to cycle through more settings, one of which should be the time zone.

Atomic Clock by SkyScan model # 28600. Clock


It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

Have a sky scan atomic clock model 86715. it does not adjust when we have the time change. What can I do to correct the time.


If this model has a DST switch on the back, make sure that it's turned ON. If there's no DST switch you can force a manual change by changing the time zone setting, but you'll need to do that twice a year. Also note that if the clock is more than two years old, turning the DST switch ON will make the clock conform to the old DST changeover dates.

AI can't figure out how to set the atomic clock


This clock will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it;s self change walls and location in your house.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes and is best received at night.

Hope this tip helps.

Set the time on my skyscan atomic clock mo 8672


The clock will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.

SHORT VERSION:
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.
