Hello


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
Ok.

Www.lacrossetechnology.com/8248 need to reset time!


I'm not totally sure what you mean by "reset the time" because the unit normally sets the time automatically from the WWVB radio time signal. If you want to do it manually, this is what the Instruction Manual (PDF format) says:

MANUAL TIME SETTING

In case the atomic clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.

  1. The hour digits will start flashing in the upper LCD.
  2. Select the desired hours by pressing and releasing the + key.
  3. Press and release the SET key to advance to the minutes setting.
  4. Now the minute digits will start flashing.
  5. Select the desired minutes by pressing and releasing the + key. If the + key is held, the units
    will increase by 5.
  6. Press and release the SET key to confirm the Time setting and continue to the Year setting.

We now have two wall clocks that have stopped. Replacing batteries has not worked. Are they repairable? Can we get new or reconditioned movements?


Hello
Check its battery contacts for any rust or dust. Anyway clean it well and put the pattery, and check whether it is working or not.

Battery - The La Crosse Technology clock must have a fresh battery to receive and process the time signal.

Location - Try a different location, ideally near a window. It should be at least six feet from computers, TVs, air conditioners, other Radio-

Controlled clocks and other electrical appliances that cause interference.

Weather - Electrical storms between you and Colorado during the night will interfere with the WWVB signal.

Although we cannot control the weather we can help you predict it (see www.lacrossetechnology.com).

Daylight Savings Time

The National Institute of Standards and Technology and WWVB encode a special DST "bit" in the WWVB transmission for DST. Your La

Crosse Technology clock will read this information and automatically advance the hands one hour in the spring and eleven hours in the fall.

Arizona and Indiana

If you live in an area that does not recognize DST you must press the (unmarked) DST button for one second to deactivate your clock's DST
program. To reactivate the DST program simply press the DST button again for one second.

My WWVB radio controlled quartz ch 899 clock is 21 minutes off the correct time. How do I set the clock by minute intervals?


these really aren't atomic clocks and are set at the factory. It receives, it's LF signal out of Colorado and should correct itself. If not contact the manufacturer.

You don't set the time. You set the Time Zone and it sets itself.

What model is YOUR clock?

This site lists several models of La Crosse wall clocks with downloadable instructions.
