Q: How does the moon phase work? A: The segments that are highlighted will portray
the part of the moon that is lit. For instance, the
moon will be blank during a new moon and dark during
a full moon. This is set by the tower in Ft. Collins
and therefore needs a signal in order to read accurately.
The Moon on the clock has only 4 segments to show
all 28 days in a lunar month. This may cause the moon
phase feature to be off by a few hours. For example
a full moon may not show on the exact hour that your
calendar may say the full moon is.
Q: Why is my time incorrect or not displaying at
If you have not yet installed the batteries or
plugged in the clock and it shows a time, remove
the scratch-guard from the LCD panel.
This clock receives a signal from Ft. Collins,
Colorado (WWVB) to set the clock to atomic time.
Sometimes, due to adverse weather or aTMospheric
conditions you will not be able to receive a signal
immediately. The best way to get a signal is to
put your clock in a window facing Colorado until
you see the tower icon appear.
If your time is off by an increment of 1 hour,
change your time zone to match your location.
