INTRODUCTION
The Radio Controlled Mechanism fitted to your clock has a built in
receiver which is tuned into the National Physical Laboratory MSF
transmitter based in Anthorn, Cumbria, UK.
The advantages of using this Technology are:
1. Automatically adjusts the clock for Summer/Winter time changes.
2. Automatic precision - Accurate to within one second every 1000 years.
3. Fully Automatic set up - Simply insert battery.

TO INSTALL/REPLACE BATTERY/IES
Open the battery compartment cover and insert battery/ies
observing the polarity markings inside the compartment. After a few
seconds the hands will automatically move to the 12 o'clock position,
this indicates the clock is in the receiving mode. The clock will receive
the time signal and set itself to the correct time.
Note: Be patient this can take a while.
FOR CLOCKS WITH M.SET/REC BUTTON
If you feel your clock is taking too long to receive the time signal, you
can set it manually...
Push and hold the M.SET button after a few seconds the hands will
start to move. Keep the button pressed down until the correct time is
displayed, then release the button. The clock will now work as a quartz
clock until it receives the time signal. When successful, the received
time will override the manual set time.
FOR CLOCKS WITH ALARM SET KNOB
Turn the Alarm set knob in the direction of the arrow to set the desired
alarm time.
The following suggestion may help improve reception of
the MSF signal:
Check that the battery/ies are new and in good condition.
Check that the battery/ies are inserted correctly.
Try rotating the clock as the internal receiver that picks up the signal is
most effective when it is facing directly towards or away from Anthorn.
Try moving your clock to a new location away from any electrical
equipment e.g. T.V, computers or radios, and start the set-up again.
Remove the battery/ies and insert the battery/ies again after 5.30pm.
Due to local interference the signal is stronger between midnight & 5am.
Note: During initial set up, if the signal is weak and the clock has not set
within 12 minutes, move clock to new location, press and hold REC
button for a few seconds to start the receiving mode again.
Note: To conserve battery/ies life the clock will search for the time signal
every second hour on the odd hours (1 o'clock, 3 o'clock etc) after the
time signal is received.
Interruption to the MSF signal
The Anthorn transmitter is periodically shut down for scheduled
maintenance resulting in no signal being transmitted.

within 2 meters of the clock.
Location of the clocks internal receiver within the building.
Reduced local signal due to steel framed structure.
Outside the normal transmission radius.
