Meteotime
Weather station
with Thermo-Hygrometer
WM5300
MUST READ BEFORE GETTING STARTED
Your Meteotime Weather Station is different to traditional weather stations which measure the prevailing conditions
only, the date of this weather station is based on the METEOTIME which is worked out on a daily basis by highly
professional meteorologists using state-of-art instruments.
The Meteotime Weather Station is engineered in such a way that it is able to receive the coded METEOTIME signal
containing the weather information. The information is broadcasted via the stations for radio-controlled clocks DCF77
(localed in Germany). For this reason, your Meteotime Weather Station is also a radio-controlled clock with all the
known advantages, such as always showing the exact time, and automatic change to daylight saving time in winter
and in summer.
You are able to receive weather forecasts for 60 meteorological regions within Europe for up to 4 days in advance,
and offer a 2-day-advance forecasts for an additional 30 regions.
Watch the symbol GOOD RECEPTION or BAD RECEPTION on the display. Once you have found
the right location for GOOD RECEPTION, you may leave the Meteotime Weather Station there, it
will collect its data by radio controlled signal. Within a few minutes time and the date will
appear. However, the transfer of the very large amount of data (forecast for all regions and
days) will take much longer.
To completely receive all data will take up to 24 hours form the time of the initial setup.
