Daylight Saving Time Rules Change...
No Problem for True Radio-Controlled Clocks (Atomic Clocks).
Important Information Regarding New Changes to the Daylight Saving Time (DST) Rules:
September 8, 2005, a bill was signed into Federal law that will extend Daylight
Saving Time in the USA by nearly a month. Starting in 2007, Daylight Saving Time
will begin the 2nd Sunday of March and end the 1st Sunday in November.
This change in dates has created some concerns about products that
automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time (DST).
How Will the DST Change Affect True Radio-Controlled (Atomic) Instruments?
day, True Radio-Controlled (Atomic) devices synchronize
themselves automatically with the National Institute of Standards and
Technology's Atomic Clock in the State of Colorado, USA. This means that if you own a True Radio-Controlled (Atomic) device, you will not have to worry
about the new DST changes beginning in 2007.
Unfortunately, some other companies have products that only claim
to automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time. If the product in question is not
a True Radio-Controlled (Atomic) device may not correctly adjust for the DST changes in
2007 and later.
Now, for the good part: ALL the devices on this site that are label either Radio-Controlled or Atomic, or both, are GUARANTEED to automatically adjust to the new time changes when the law goes into effect. At most, you may have to push a button or change the setting to or from one setting to another. At best, you do NOTHING. You have NOTHING to worry about with any of these devices from us, past, present, or future, if they are labeled either Radio-Controlled or Atomic. Rest easy.
