SOURCE: Cannot reset my SkyScan Atomic clock after changing batteries

The SciScan and SkyScan atomic clocks are very similar.
The instructions are embossed on the battery door of the indoor clock.
Replace the batteries in the remote temperature sensor first.
Remove/replace the batteries in the internal display unit.
Reception for the atomic signal will require up to 30 or 40 minutes.
The temperature sensors will be displayed almost immediately.

Just followed these instructions, and it works.

SOURCE: 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.

Please help me turn off the alarm

On my similar model, there are 4 buttons on the back. The 3rd button starting at the left is labeled ALM. You should be able to turn the alarm off by pressing that button.

first make sure there are fresh batteries in the clock. when you first put the batteries in you will need to look on the clock for the buttons that allow you to choose your time zone., press that button. put the clock in a window or near a wall so that the clock back faces toward Colorado (assuming you are in the united states) colorado is where the atomic clock is located. depending on where you are located you may have to wait till early am (3 to 5 am) to get a strong signal form WWV (the call sign of the transmitter station). you clock should automatically set over night and be ready to go the next morning. you can also manually set the clock, but that kind of defeats the purpose. good luck

Reset clock

Hi there.
I believe that your clock is automatic. It jumps to the signal from the atomic clock somewhere in your area, every hour.
Could be false signal from somewhere.

I have a radio Shack Atomic Wall Clock 63-1438 and the time didn't change on Oct 31, 2009. Should it automatically change of do I have to reset the clock?

Most atomic clocks simply receive the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) time signal. They do not all allow for daylight savings time changes as not all areas use it.

You will have to adjust manually.
