How to change the time on the Timex auto set clock radio.. the DST hasn't switched back to EST.
Timex T309TT Clock Radio.
Setting the time:
Unlike another review that says it automatically sets the time, I did
not find that to be the case, I believe the model with the cd player
does that, but this one had to be set. I'm not one to usually read the
manual as I like to figure things out on my own, and was able to set the
time without the use of it. It was as simple as holding the time set
button and using the reverse and forward buttons to advance the time.

button until the time on the screen starts to flash. Then you can click
the button to choose through 3 settings which are every day, weekends,
or Mon-Fri. This radio also comes with nature sounds. I have not used
this feature at this time. You have the choice of
* Ocean surf
* Forest spring
* Rushing brook
* Summer wind
Hope this helps :)
