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

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.

How do I set time zone


My 86742 batteries took a dump after many years so I ended up with the same problem. It took me about an hour to figure it out, but here is the solution:

1) Pull the batteries and replace them, or gently insert a straightened paper clip into the "reset" hole in the back of the clock. The clock will beep.

2) Press the "receive" button" so the clock sets itself. The default time zone will be "EA".

3) Press the "adjust" button untill the time zone is showing (rather than the day-of-the-week).

4) Press and HOLD the "set" button down untill the hours digits start to flash.

5) Now press the "set" button again six times. The time zone characters will flash.

6) Press the "adjust" button untill your time zone appears.

7) Press the "mode" button to return the clock to normal operation.

8) Press the "adjust" button to display the day-of-week.

Do you think they could have made it any MORE complicated?

Skyscan atomic clock receives time signal but is displaying GMT rather than EST.. how do I get it to display EST?


You didn't tell us the model number but whatever it is, you should find instructions here:
Skyscan website
Our various 'atomic' clocks have either a menu that lets one select or a simple slide switch with US time zones from which to choose.
