Skyscan atomic clock problem

Look carefully at the back of your clock for a reset button. The temp may have encountered a problem and stopped working. Also, be sure the battery is fresh. Hope this helps.

I cannot get my SkyScan Atomic Clock to sync with Colorado.I have replaced the batteries and I have waited since Nov 6th and it stil hasn't happened. My Clock is model 87315. Please help

I have the same model. Make sure you have good batteries and move the clock away from any electrical equipment. Since WWVB broadcasts at a frequency of 60kHz, this could be a harmonic of 60 Hz.

If all else fails, remove the batteries, take the clock outside and reinstall the batteries. If you do this at night you should pick up a signal..

I just had to move my clock out of the computer room and it picked up the signal at noon.

Good luck

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

My clock is nort showing up the outside tempertute

Seems to be a consistent problem with Skyscan. I have the 88800 model and my outdoor transmitter isn't transmitting the temperature either. We've replaced the batteries in both the transmitter and clock and nothing for outdoor temp. It's only been used for 9 months.

The outside temp sender won't work. We put new batteries in it, but it does not send a signal. It will not put an outside temp on the clock.

Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.
