Thank you ..........
for purchasing the world’s most accurate clock radio from Emerson Research.
The CKA1100 is designed to receive and decode the time signals transmitted from
the U.S. Atomic Clock, which is operated by the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) at Fort Collins, Colorado. This is the same time signal that is
used by the U.S. military, and agencies such as NASA, to time Shuttle launches,
space walks, etc. Whenever split second accuracy is essential the U.S government
relies on the Atomic Clock. And now you can too. The Atomic Clock is considered
accurate to within plus or minus one second per million years! This is the clock
that you will use to set every other clock in your home.
In addition to the absolute accuracy the CKA1100 also adjusts for Daylight Saving
Time and Leap Years automatically. And the month/date calendar display also
adjusts automatically for months of less than 31 days. There are dual alarms that
can be programmed for weekdays only, weekends only, or all 7 days; a great
sounding AM/FM radio; and an extra large display for both time and month/date
that you can see from anywhere in your room.
We believe this may be the best clock radio available anywhere. We know it’s the
most accurate.
Please be sure to read this manual completely so you understand how the CKA1100
receives the Atomic Clock signal, and how to take advantage of all the other great
features we have included in this model. If you have any problems with the set-up
or operation of this model please call the Emerson Research Customer Service
Hot-Line toll free at: 800–898–9020.
Once again, thanks for purchasing the CKA1100 from Emerson Research.
The serial number of your unit is located on a label on the bottom of the cabinet.

• Extend the wire of the external WWVB long wave antenna to its full length.
Insert the plug from the antenna wire into the antenna jack on the back of the
radio.
BACK PANEL
POWER SOURCE
This radio is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC power only. Do not
attempt to operate the radio on any other power source. You could cause damage
to the radio that is not covered by your warranty.
This radio should be connected to an AC outlet that is always ‘live’. Do not connect
it to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. When the power to the radio is
interrupted, the back up battery take over to maintain the time and alarm settings.
To maximize the life of the battery keep the radio connected to a ‘live’AC outlet at
all times.
You will note that this system is
equipped with a polarized AC power
plug having one blade wider than the

BATTERY BACK-UP SYSTEM
This model includes a battery back-up system that will maintain your time and
alarm settings in the event of a temporary power interruption. If power is interrupted
the display will go ‘Off’, but the batteries will continue to power the clock. When
power is restored the display will come ‘On’again and your time and alarm settings
will be correct.
The battery back-up system requires 2 “AA” batteries, not included. We recommend
that you use a well-known brand of alkaline batteries for longest life and best
performance. The life of the batteries is affected by the frequency and length of
the power interruptions that occur in your home. For best results we recommend
changing the batteries every 12 months. There is also a “BATT. LOW” indicator on
the front panel that will warn you when the batteries are getting weak and need to
be replaced.
To install or replace the batteries:
1.) Place the radio face down. We suggest you place a towel or similar soft cloth
under the radio to avoid scratching the front lens.
2.) Remove the battery door by pressing down on the tab
as illustrated.
3.) Insert 2 “AA” alkaline batteries into the compartment
as illustrated.
4.) Replace the battery door and place the radio right
side up.
If there are no back-up batteries installed, or the back-up batteries are exhausted,
and you experience a power interruption the time and alarm settings will be lost.
Although the time will be reset automatically the next time the Atomic Clock signal
is received, the alarm times must be reset manually. We recommend that you
change the batteries as soon as you notice the BATT. LOW indicator is ‘On’, and
after changing the batteries check and adjust the alarm time settings if necessary.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ATOMIC CLOCK TIME SIGNAL
• This clock radio is designed to receive and decode the U.S. Atomic Clock time
signal transmitted from station WWVB. This station is operated by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is located near Fort Collins,
Colorado at latitude 40°40’28.3”N and longitude 105°02’39.5”W. The time signal
is broadcast continuously on the long wave band at a transmission frequency of
60kHz.
• Although the signal can be received anywhere in the continental United States,
the southern portions of Canada and the northern portions of Mexico, the greater
the distance from Fort Collins, the weaker the signal becomes. The most difficult
area for reception is the northeastern coastal region of the USA. In addition to
the distance from Fort Collins there is also a high level of interference in this
area. This area is also in range of station MSF in Teddington, Middlesex, England.
Station MSF is also transmitting at 60kHz and the signal from this station can
interfere with signal from station WWVB, especially in the area from Maine to
New York.
• Automatic time setting is never instantaneous, even if your home was located
next door to the transmitter. The Atomic Clock time signal consists of a ‘stream’
of information that normally takes between two and three minutes to receive
and be decoded before the clock in this radio can set itself. Also if the signal is
subjected to interference during reception the clock will be unable to decode
the information and set itself. In some cases if the signal was ‘corrupted’during
reception the clock might actually display an incorrect time. However when the
signal is finally received correctly and the information decoded the clock will
correct itself automatically.

CKA1100_drafts052102.p65

21/5/2002, 15:19
• Under the best conditions, receiving a strong signal with no interference, the
clock will take at least 5 minutes to receive and decode the signal and display
the correct month, date, day, and time. If you live in an area of poor reception
and high interference it could take several hours, or even overnight, for the
clock to set itself correctly. This is completely normal and not an indication of
any problems with your unit. If you live in one of the difficult reception areas,
please read all of the instructions very carefully, and please be patient.
• The best time for reception of the WWVB signal is the period between midnight
and dawn, because interference from other sources tends to be lower during
these hours.
• Reception of the Atomic Clock time signal may also be difficult in buildings with
steel frames, such as high rise apartment or office buildings, which usually also
have windows with steel frames, and buildings with steel roofs. Large amounts
of steel may block reception of the signal.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE WWVB SIGNAL RECEIVER IN CKA1100
• When the radio is connected to AC power for the first time the receiver turns
‘On’automatically and tries to receive the WWVB time signal. If the signal is
received successfully the clock display will scroll for a few moments and then
show the correct month, date, day, and time in the Eastern Zone (ZONE 01),
which is the default time zone.
• If the WWVB time signal is not received within 10 minutes the receiver switches
‘Off’and the display shows 12:10 (AM), Monday 1 01 (January 1st). The clock
starts running at this point. At the beginning of each hour the receiver again
turns ‘On’automatically and tries to receive the WWVB signal for 10 minutes.
This 10 minute ‘On’and 50 minute ‘Off’cycle will continue indefinitely until the
WWVB signal is received.
• You can turn the receiver ‘On’at any time by pressing the “+” and “–” buttons
together. If you do switch it on manually in this manner it will listen for the WWVB
signal for 10 minutes and then shut ‘Off’again.
• Since the WWVB receiver can generate Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)
that can interfere with normal AM/FM reception we have designed this model so
that the WWVB receiver automatically switches ‘Off’whenever the AM/FM radio
is turned ‘On’. If you switch the radio ‘On’before the WWVB signal is received
the clock will not be able to set itself while that radio is ‘On’. After switching the
radio ‘Off’press the “+” and “–” buttons together to switch the WWVB receiver
‘On’again.
• The WWVB receiver is automatically programmed to switch ‘On’every day for
10 minutes at the hours of 1 AM, 2 AM, 3 AM, 4 AM, and 5 AM when the WWVB
signal is strongest. So even after the WWVB signal was received and the clock
has set itself, it will continue to monitor the WWVB signal 5 times each day and
resynchronize itself if necessary to maintain perfect accuracy.
• If you live in a difficult reception area and you do not wish to wait for the clock to
set itself automatically you may set the clock manually by following the instructions
below. However once the WWVB signal is finally received the clock will
synchronize itself automatically with the U.S Atomic Clock. Some people like to
set their clocks 5 or 10 minutes fast to make sure they are always “on time”.
That is not possible with this or any other “atomic clock”. Once the WWVB
signal is received the clock will ignore your setting and readjust itself to the
correct time automatically.

21/5/2002, 15:19
SETTING THE CLOCK THE FIRST TIME
Location, Location, Location.
Since the WWVB signal can be blocked or shielded by large metal objects, and
affected by interference from other electronic devices, please do not place the
radio and the external antenna in a metal cabinet, on a metal table, metal stand, or
metal shelf. And do not position it next to a computer, television set, cordless
telephone, audio system, or other devices that either receive or transmit radio
signals. If you live in a fringe reception area we recommend placing the radio near
a window that faces in the general direction of Colorado.
Positioning The External WWVB Antenna
Make sure that the plug from the external WWVB antenna is fully inserted into the
jack on the back of the radio cabinet. The antenna should be positioned as far
away from the radio cabinet as the antenna wire will allow. If you have the radio on
a night table or desk you may allow the antenna to hang down behind the table or
desk. You may also hang the antenna on a wall using a small tack or nail and the
“keyhole” provided on the antenna housing. If you live in a fringe reception area
you may also tape the antenna to a window for better reception of the WWVB
signal. Keep the antenna away from large metal objects or other electrical
appliances.
Automatic Time Setting
• After you confirm that the WWVB antenna is firmly connected to the antenna
jack, and you have installed the recommended back up batteries, connect the
AC power cord to a convenient 120V 60Hz AC outlet. Confirm that the “BATT
LOW” indicator is not ‘On’.
Note: Make sure that the outlet is always “live”. Do not connect this radio to an
outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.
• All of the indicators in the display will illuminate momentarily and then the display
will show “ZONE 01”. The SIGNAL indicator will flash 4 times to confirm that
the WWVB receiver is ‘On’.
10
CKA1100_drafts052102.p65
10
21/5/2002, 15:19
• If the receiver detects the WWVB signal the SIGNAL indicator will remain ‘On’.
When the receiver receives and decodes the complete information stream from
WWVB the clock display will suddenly begin scrolling for a few seconds and
then the display will show the correct Month, Date, Day, and Time in the Eastern
Time Zone. If you live in the eastern Time Zone there is nothing else to do. Your
unit is now synchronized with the U.S. Atomic Clock and the SIGNAL indicator
will remain ‘On’.
• If you live in a different time zone you should now adjust the display to your own
time zone by holding the TIME ZONE button and pressing the “+” button to
select your own zone as follows:
ZONE 02 — CENTRAL TIME
ZONE 03 — MOUNTAIN TIME
ZONE 04 — PACIFIC TIME
You only need to adjust the Time Zone setting once and the unit will remember
your zone automatically.
Note: If AC power is interrupted and the back up batteries are exhausted the
clock will again default to “ZONE 01” when the power is restored.
Failure To Receive The WWVB Signal
• If the internal receiver fails to receive the WWVB signal, the receiver shuts ‘off’
and the display changes from “ZONE 01” to “12:10 (AM) Monday 1 01” and
the clock continues running at that point.
• After 50 minutes the receiver automatically switches ‘On’again and listens for
the WWVB signal for another ten minutes. This cycle will be repeated indefinitely
until the WWVB signal is successfully received and the correct time is displayed.
Note: Remember that if the Radio is turned ‘on’the WWVB receiver turns ‘Off’
automatically. So if you turn the radio ‘On’before the WWVB signal is received
you must manually turn ‘On’the WWVB receiver again after you turn the Radio
‘Off’. Turn ‘On’the WWVB receiver by pressing the “+” and “–” buttons together.
The SIGNAL indicator will flash 4 times to confirm that the receiver is ‘On’again.

Manual Time Setting
If the receiver fails to detect the WWVB signal after several tries and you do not
want to wait until the reception condition improves, you may also set the time
manually as follows:
1.) Set the display to the correct year. Depress the DATE/MONTH and TIME
buttons together. The Month/Date display will show the initial default year of
2001. Continue to press the DATE/MONTH and TIME buttons and press the
“+” button to advance the year display to the correct year.
2.) Set the display to the correct month and date. Depress the DATE/MONTH
button. The month/date display will show the initial default month and date of
January 1st ( 1 01). Continue to press the DATE/MONTH button and press the
“+” (or “–”) buttons to advance the month/date display to the correct setting.
The Day indicator will change automatically to match the month/date display.
You do not adjust the Day display separately.
3.) Set the display to the correct time. Depress the TIME/SECONDS button and
the “+” or “–” buttons to move the display forward or backward to the correct
time. The display changes slowly at first and then begins to change rapidly. If
you pass the correct time simply press the “+” or “–” buttons to back up to the
correct setting.
Notes:
• Be sure to observe the AM indicator to make sure you have set the time correctly.
If the AM indicator is ‘On’the time displayed is “AM”. If the AM indicator is ‘Off’
the time displayed is “PM”.
• After setting the time recheck the month/date display. If you advanced the time
past midnight (12:00 AM) the month/date display will change. Re-adjust the
month/date display if necessary.

21/5/2002, 15:19
Automatic Time Synchronization
Whether the clock set itself automatically or whether you set the clock manually
the WWVB receiver will automatically switch ‘On’for 10 minutes at 1 AM, 2 AM,
3 AM, 4 AM, and 5 AM every day and listen for the WWVB signal. During this time
between midnight and dawn the interference level is reduced and the WWVB
signal can be received clearly even in the fringe reception areas. The clock will
automatically resynchronize itself with the U.S. Atomic Clock time signal.
Note: If the radio is ‘On’during this time period the WWVB receiver will not turn
‘On’.
Seconds Counter
If you need to momentarily view the seconds display depress the TIME/SECONDS
button. The month/date display changes to a seconds counter for as long as the
button is depressed.
SETTING THE WAKE UP TIMES
Your Atomic Clock Radio has two separate wake up alarms that can be set and
used independently. In addition the Alarm Mode selector allows you to set either or
both alarms for Week Days only, Week Ends only, or Every Day operation.
The procedure for setting the wake up times is the same for both alarms.
1.) Depress the ALM 1 or ALM 2 button. The display will change from the current
time to the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time. The Day indicators will show
which mode is selected: Week Days only; Week Ends only; or Every Day.
2.) Continue pressing the ALM 1 or ALM 2 buttons and press the “+” or “–” buttons
to adjust the display to the desired wake up time. Be sure to set correctly for
AM or PM.
3.) To change the Alarm Mode setting depress either the ALM 1 or ALM 2 buttons
and press the ALARM MODE button repeatedly until the day indicators show
the desired mode: Monday through Friday only; Saturday and Sunday only; or
All 7 days.
After adjusting the wake up times you may recheck the settings at any time by
simply pressing the ALM 1 or ALM 2 button. The display will change from current
time to wake up time and the day indicators will show which alarm mode has been
selected.

SLEEP TO MUSIC TIMER
This feature allows you to program the radio to play for a long as 90 minutes or as
little as 2 minutes before shutting off automatically.
1.) Press the SLEEP button. The display will show “SL 10” and the radio will turn
‘On’. Select the station and adjust the volume as desired. After 10 minutes the
radio will shut off automatically.
2.) To adjust the amount of time before the radio shuts ‘Off’, depress and hold the
SLEEP button and press the “+” or “–” buttons to adjust the amount of time up
to 90 minutes or down to 2 minutes. Release the buttons when the desired
amount of time appears on the display. The radio will play for the amount of
time you selected and then shut ‘Off’automatically.
Notes:
• When you adjust the amount of sleep time from the initial default setting of 10
minutes, your new setting becomes the new default sleep time. For example, if
you adjust the sleep time setting from 10 minutes to 60 minutes, each time you
press the SLEEP button the display will show 60 minutes. This will continue as
the default sleep time until you change the setting again.
• If you experience a power interruption and the back up batteries are exhausted
the sleep timer setting will revert to the original 10 minute default setting when
power is restored.
• Remember that the station and volume level you select for Sleep timer operation
is the same station and volume level that you will hear when the radio turns on
in the morning.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
If the cabinet becomes dusty, wipe it with a soft cloth. If the cabinet
becomes smudged or dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly dampened
cloth. Never allow water or any liquid to get inside the cabinet. Never
use any abrasive cleaners or cleaning pads as these will damage the
finish of your radio.
