My Stauer Atomic won't stay connected to time signal
I received my Stauer Atomic on Christmas Day. The tower symbol has always been ''solid'' since then. It has seemed to work correctly until yesterday.
Sometime yesterday the tower symbol disappeared. I may have lost the signal traveling through the Poconos. When I got home I followed the directions for seting the time.
I press the button for more than three seconds and the hands go to twelve. Then I press it again, and the hands find the correct time. The tower symbol flashes. However, after maybe 15 seconds the tower symbol again disappears.
My understanding is that the tower symbol should always be present. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.

Take a look at http://www.stauer.com/pdf/17468.pdf
I see that this watch gets it's time signal from Boulder, Colorado so it will only work properly in North America. Perhaps they also do models for the European market - if so I would expect them to work in the same fashion so the manual should still be relevant.
The watch 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.
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
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.

When the logo is not shown in the bottom corner, the watch hasn't got a signal yet. put your watch on a window sill, and hold the Forward buton until the watch says GET! Form there, the watch will either display ERROR, if it couldn't find a signal, or will have the latest and most accurate time. The watch is also probably set up for auto detect, which is best. To do auto detect, before going to bed, the watch will try to get a signal from 12 midnight, to 5 in the morning.
