ABOUT WWVB (radio-controlled time)
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology-Time and Frequency
Division) radio station, WWVB, is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado and transmits the
exact time signal continuously throughout the United States at 60 kHz. The signal
can be received up to 2,000 miles away through the internal antenna in the indoor
weather station. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is
very limited during daylight hours. The indoor weather station will search for a signal
every night when reception is best. The WWVB radio station derives its signal from
the NIST Atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. A team of atomic physicists continually
measure every second of every day to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second a
day. These physicists have created an international standard, measuring a second
as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium 133 atom in a vacuum. For more informa-

In this time the indoor weather station and remote thermo/hygro sensor will start to
talk to each other and the indoor weather station will show both the indoor temperature and humidity and the outdoor temperature and humidity. If the indoor weather
station does not display all values after the 15 minutes please retry the set up as
stated above. After all values are displayed for 15 minutes you can place your remote thermo/hygro sensor outdoors and set your time.
The remote thermo/hygro sensor should be placed in a dry, shaded area. The remote thermo/hygro sensor has a range of 330 feet. Any walls that the signal will
have to pass through will reduce distance. An outdoor wall or window will have 20 to
30 feet of resistance and an interior wall will have 10 to 20 feet of resistance. Your
distance plus resistance should not exceed 330 ft. in a straight line.

DETAILED SET-UP GUIDE
I. Battery Installation
Batteries will fit tightly. To avoid start-up problems, make sure that the batteries do
not spring free. Also be sure to insert alkaline batteries into the remote thermo/hygro
sensor first, then the indoor weather station. Initial set up should be done with the
remote thermo/hygro sensor and indoor weather station in the same room. The units
GB
P.4
1. Remove the battery cover (the cover has white writing on it).
2. Observe the correct polarity, and install three Alkaline AA batteries.
P.5
GB
3. Do not press any buttons for at least ten minutes. If a button is pressed before the
indoor weather station has received information from the TX4U sensor, no data
will be received from that sensor until reset.
4. Replace the battery cover.
III. Explanation of LCD Information
A. The below picture highlights the LCD features.
Radio-controlled
II. Start Up Sequence
A. Initial Start
1. Immediately after the batteries have been installed, the indoor weather station
will sound a “beep”, and the LCD will completely light up for a brief moment.
2. All information will then appear in normal mode, with “12:00” as the default time
and “TH.1” as the default date (2004 as the year).
3. The indoor temperature and humidity, and barometric air pressure (as 29.91 inHg
relative RH) will also be displayed.
4. There is a “satellite” icon that appears in the bottom portion of the LCD, between
the outdoor temperature and humidity - this icon informs the user that the indoor
weather station is looking for signals from the remote thermo/hygro sensor. Within
five minutes the remote temperature and humidity should be displayed-if not,
remove batteries from all units and repeat battery installation, the remote temperature sensor first, then the indoor weather station.
B. WWVB Reception
1. Once the batteries are installed in the Weather Center, it will automatically search
for the WWVB signal. If it receives a good signal (which is unlikely during daylight
hours in most locations), the WWVB reception indicator (looks like a tower icon)
will flash. The indoor weather station requires five full minutes of good reception
to successfully capture the signal and set to the correct hour, minute, second,
month, day and year. If the signal reception is not successful within ten minutes,
the signal search will be cancelled and will automatically resume every two hours
until the signal is successfully captured.
2. The signal is sent from Ft. Collins, Colorado only and is similar to an AM radio
signal. Atmospheric interferences such as storms, sunspots, and even sunlight
will cause the signal to not travel as far.
3. To maximize reception, place the indoor weather station in a window facing
Colorado, at least six feet from any electrical source (computers, televisions,
refrigerators, etc.). Do not move the indoor weather station while it is searching
for the signal.
4. The time and date can be manually set. Once the signal is captured, it will override any time and date set to the time zone selected.
5. Once the time and date are set, the indoor weather station will conduct a search
every night at midnight and correct to the accurate time and date (Daylight Saving Time is automatic). If the signal has been received in the past 24 hours, the
reception indicator will be displayed.

Note: Barometric air pressure is usually reported as “relative air pressure”. This
reading is based on the combination of absolute air pressure and altitude. In general,
an increase in altitude will result in a decrease in air pressure. Relative air pressure
will make readings in nearby locations relative to each other to allow for proper
forecasting. The absolute air pressure reading in the Weather Center cannot be
calibrated, only the relative air pressure.

D. Multiple Remote Temperature Sensors
The WS-9032U is able to receive signals from 3 different remote sensors. These
extra remote sensors can be purchased through the same dealer as this unit. A
TX4U will monitor the temperature and humidity, a TX3U will monitor temperature
and display the temperature on its LCD, a TX3UP will monitor the temperature via a
probe for measuring soil or water temperatures and a TX6U will monitor the temperature only.
Each remote sensor will have its own minimum and maximum values stored.
E. Comfort Indicator for Indoor Temperature and Humidity
1. The comfort level indicator appears inbetween the indoor tempearture and
humidity.
2. The indicator will display a “happy-face” when the temperature is between 68˚F
and 79˚F (20˚C and 25.9˚C), and the humidity is between 45% and 64%.
3. A “sad-face” will be displayed when the temperature and humidity are outside the
mentioned ranges.
F. Weather Forecast Icon and Pressure Trend Indicators
The weather forecasting feature is estimated to be 75% accurate, and is based solely
upon the change of air pressure over time. The WS-9032U averages past air-pressure readings to provide an accurate forecast-creating a necessity to disregard all
weather forecasting for 12-24 hours after the unit has been set-up, reset, or moved
from one altitude to another (i.e. from one floor of a building to another floor). In
areas where the weather is not affected by the change of air pressure, this feature
will be less accurate.
1. Weather Icons
a. There are 3 possible weather icons that will be displayed at various times in the
center of the indoor weather station.
Note: When setting up multiple units it is important to insert batteries first into all the
remote sensors, and in numeric sequence. Second install batteries into the indoor
weather station. Transmission problems will arise if this is not done correctly and if
the total time for set-up exceeds 6 minutes
Set Up of Multiple Units
It is necessary to remove the batteries from all units currently in operation.
Remove the battery covers to all remote sensors.
Place all remote sensors in a numeric sequential order.
In sequential order, install batteries following the same battery installation procedures seen in Detailed Set-Up Guide section of this manual.
e. Install batteries into the indoor weather station.

will be sunny).
ii Sun with Clouds-indicates that the weather is expected to be fair (not that the
weather will be sunny with clouds).
iii Clouds with Rain-indicates that the weather is expected to get worse (not that
the weather will be rainy).
The weather icons change when the unit detects a change in air pressure.
The icons change in order, from “sunny” to “sun with clouds” to “clouds with rain”
or the reverse.
It will not change from “sunny” directly to “clouds with rain”, although it is possible
for the change to occur quickly.
If the symbols do not change, the weather has not changed (or the change has
been slow and gradual).
The sensitivity of the change in foreacst icon is set by the user in section F of the

has a falling trend, and the weather should worsen.
8. Multiply the two values to find past air pressure (note the + or - sign of values on
the verticle axis); i.e. 0.03 hPa x 3 = 0.09 hPa, now add this value to the air
pressure (in LCD 4) to evaluate what past air pressures have been.
9. The bar chart will constantly scroll to avoid burnout of the LCD.
Note: This feature cannot be turned off.
1. Along with the forecast icon there is a pressure tendency arrow.
2. There is one that points up (on the left side of the LCD) and one that points down
(on the right side of the LCD).
3. These arrows reflect current changes in the air pressure.
4. An arrow pointing up indicates that the air pressure is increasing and the weather
is expected to improve or remain good.
5. An arrow pointing down indicates that the air pressure is decreasing and the
weather is expected to become worse or remain poor.
6. No arrow means the pressure is stable.
7. A storm can be expected if there is a drop of 4 hPa or more in less than 6 hours.
The clouds with rain icon will be displayed and the tendency arrow that points
down will be flashing-indicating the storm warning feature has been activated.
The flashing will stop when the air pressure stabilizes or begins to rise.
H. Barometric Air Pressure Reading
1. The actual barometric air pressure is displayed directly under the weather forecast icon
2. The relative air pressure is calibrated by the user through the programming mode.
3. Please Follow the programming instructions in section F of the Detailed Set Up
Guide to set this feature.
I. Air Pressure History Bar Chart
1. The bar graph shows in hPa (Hekto Pascal) the recorded air pressure over the
past 24-hours.
2. The horizontal axis shows the hours at increments of -24 hours, -18 hours, -12
hours, -9 hours, -6 hours, -3 hours, and 0 hours (current).
3. The vertical axis is set by hPa: the “0” on this axis represents the current hPa,
and + or - 1,3,5, or 7 shows (in hPa) how high or low the past air pressure was as
compared to the current one.
4. The “0” on the vertical axis indicates the current air pressure value.
5. The “0h” on the horizontal axis indicates the current hour, thus the current air
pressure also.
6. Each bar on the bar graph represents a value of 0.03 hPa, and each bar also has
a corresponding value on the verticle axis.
7. Air pressure trends can be determined by simply glancing at the bar graph.
a. If the bars are rising (higher on the right than the left) then the air pressure has
a rising trend, and the weather should improve.
b. If the bars are dropping (lower on the right than the left) then the air pressure

MOUNTING
Note: Before permanently mounting, ensure that the indoor weather station is able
to receive signals from the transmitters and WWVB signal at the desired location. To
achieve a true temperature reading, avoid mounting the remote thermo/hygro sensor (or any sensor) where direct sunlight can reach the remote sensor. We recommend that you mount the remote sensor on a North-facing wall or under an eve. The
sending range of the remote thermo/hygro sensor is 330-ft (100m) however obstacles
such as walls, concrete, and large metal objects can reduce the range. Place all
units in their desired location, and wait approximately 15 minutes before permanently mounting to ensure that there is proper reception. If the indoor weather station loses the signal from the remote sensor, it will display the last temperature reading for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of not receiving any signals, the remote temperature will display “- -.-”.
A. Mounting the Remote Thermo/hygro Sensor

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem:
The LCD is faint.
Solution:
1) Set the LCD contrast to a higher level.
2) Replace batteries.
Problem:
No outdoor temperature/humidity is displayed.
Solution:
1) Remove all batteries, reinsert into the remote thermo/hygro sensor first, then into
the indoor weather station.
2) Place remote thermo/hygro sensor closer to the indoor weather station.
3) Be sure all batteries are fresh.
4) No other interfering sources are being used (such as computer monitors, TV
sets, headphones, or speakers) in the vicinity. The signal travels in a straight line,
an electrical source near that “line” may cause interference.
Problem:
Temperature, humidity, or air pressure is incorrect.
Solution:
1) Check/Replace batteries.
2) If multiple remote sensors are in use, check location with corresponding “boxed
numbers.”
3) Move away from sources of heat/cold.
4) Adjust relative air pressure to a value from a reliable source (TV radio, etc.).
5) The indoor weather station and remote sensors are calibrated at the factory. If
there is a consistent problem, please call La Crosse Technology.
Problem:
“- -” in humidity display.
Solution:
1) Humidity is below 1% or above 99%.
2) TX3U or TX3UP is used for remote temperature.
Problem:
WWVB time and date will not set or update
Solution:
1) Wait until overnight for signal to be received
2) Move indoor weather station away from sources of electricity
3) Place indoor weather station in window facing Colorado
4) The first reception is most difficult, as the indoor weather station needs five continual minutes of clear signal reception. After the initial time/date set, the indoor
weather station only requires one full minute of clear reception each night.
