Re: HOW DO YOU SET THE TIME ON THE: "DESIGN GO" KK939B...
Try using the manual if you can't see any button that say time, or menu on it. That radio is subject to a lot of complaints, that is what you get when you shop for cheap electronics. Some buttons have to be held down for a few seconds to get into a hidden feature, like setting the time.
to set the alarm, press and release the "alarm" button; then press and hold the "set" button until the hour begins to blink. press "adv" until the hour AM or PM is correct;now press and release "mode" so that the minutes begin to blink. Set the minutes using "adv"; now press and release "set". Finally, press and release "adv" once to bring up (or remove) the alarm icon. Then press"alarm" once to return to the main display.
To set main display, press and hold "set" until the hour begins to blink; press "adv" repeatedly until hour AM or PM is correct. Now press "mode" so that the minutes blink, and use "adv" to get the minutes right; then press "mode" so that the next item begins to blink; use "adv" to advance until it is correct, then press "mode" so that the next item blinks, and so forth until you're all done. Finally, press and release "set".

Has the model a timer device on it that is set to send it to "sleep" mode?
You can check by switching the Radio on and timing how long it stays on. Then repeat the action. If it turns off on the second time at the same length of time, it has a timer on it.
Read the manual. The radio may have been set to some defaults, although the time was not correct. When you started setting the time, it is possible that you should have run through the whole setup. For example some radios have different ranges for the FM bands: there is a Japanese band that starts at 76 MHZ, and ends at 108 MHz; there is the standard FM band from 88 MHz to 108 MHz; and a school band (I can't remember its range).
For AM the gap between neighboring positions may be set at 9 kHz or 10 kHz depending on the location (region or continent).
I suggest you get the manual and see if there is an initial setup procedure, then follow it.
Hold down the numbered keys to set a preset. Just press them when you want to go to that station. Holding "1" sets preset 1. You can also change your band to have 10 presets on band A, B, C (some radios have more bands).
Hope this helps I had same irratating problem 1. The RP200 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within a range of 1500km of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal. When the RP200 is brought within this range, its auto-control mechanism will override all manual settings. 2. The clock automatically starts scanning the RF 433MHz signal after new batteries are inserted in the main unit. When receiving the RF 433MHz radio signal, the Radio Tower symbol starts to blink. A complete reception generally takes about 10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal. 3. When the reception is complete, the Radio Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain solid 4. For an optimal reception, place the clock away from metal objects and electrical appliances (i.e. television, computer, monitor, etc) to minimize interference. Notes: • The unit will receive the RCC signals every day at 2am. • The RCC signal can also be triggered by holding the key for 2 seconds in time mode. • When the unit is searching or receiving the RCC signal (which lasts about 5 minutes), none of the keys is working except the key. • Press and hold the key for 2 seconds if you wish to stop to the RCC signal search. If the RP200 is brought outside the range of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal or if the signal is interfered, please set the time and date manually according to the instructions below. If the unit is located within the radio-controlled range, you may want to customize some of the clock settings. Note: When no key is pressed for more than one minute, the unit returns to time mode (time, date and temperature display World Time Clock This function allows you to adjust the clock to a time zone. It is particularly useful for travelers. Set the clock to the city you are located in, or to a city in the same time zone. 1. In time mode, press [MODE] twice to select the world time clock. 2. Press the key to select the city in which you are located. 3. Press to adjust the summer saving time function. 4. Press and hold [SET] to set the world time as the local time. When the local time is the same as the world time, the icon flashes.
Before you call a doctor or an exorcist, verify that you're using your shortwave receiver under normal condition. There are several factors which affects reception of whortwave programs and signals.
1. Check for the time and frequencies. Depending on your country and location, all Shortwave time zones are based on World Time in UTC or GMT ("Universal Time Coordinates" or Greenwich Mean Time") In my country (Philippines, Asia) for example, we are 8 hours advanced from World Time. You can check your time zones and regions using a world map.
2. Check for propagation and band conditions/ openings. During daytime higher frequencies such as 9 -21 Mhz are active, while nightime frequencies are the lower bands such as 3 - 9 Mhz. Daytime and nigthime divider frequency is about 10 Mhz, that means you might receive signals under most conditions during daytime and night time. Check some technical books on amateur radio operations or magazines for radio reception. It might be worthwile to study books or materials on receiving international broadcasts stations before you can receive good or adequate shortwave signals. This might become your hobby too, "DXing" or receiving distant stations from across the world. Try it, but it might be an addicting hobby once you're drawn to it!
3. Check if any shortwave station broadcast in any specific time of day at any frequency. Shortwave broadcasts are scheduled based on band openings mentioned above. If for example I'm a Shortwave broadcaster from Asia, and would like to broadcast my signal through the Americas, I would use band openings with respect with time zones. If it is night time in the Philippines, and daytime in the Canada, I would use the higher frequencies to propagate my signal. So I would specify the time for example "8:00 pm Philippine local time, 12 hours UTC, and 7 am in Canada"--- Asia: 8 hours advanced to UTC, Canada--- 5 hours behind to UTC). So shortwave broadcast schedules varies. Broadcast schedules are available on the net, just search for the Shortwave station you want to hear such as Radio, Japan, Radio Australia, BBC, DW (Deutche Welle) Radio in Germany, China Radio International... There's too many shortwave stations waiting to be discovered out there! Check some books and magazines too such as Popular Communications, Monitoring Times, Passport to World Band Radios, World Radio and TV Handbook, etc. You may want to check if any station would be broadcasting in your dialects as most of these mainstream and regular broadcasters are multilingual.
2. Check your location. If you are using your radio indoors, shortwave signals might not entering your homes or offices due concrete walls and metal railings or fence. There are many factors which blocks radio waves especially in the HF or lowetr bands. Try receiving AM (Mediumwave) first. If it cannot receive any AM station, then you would not receive any Shortwave signal at all, even if you extend fully the telescopic whip. If you cannot receive AM or Shortwave signal indoors, try using your receiver outdoors.
2. Check for local interference. Your receiver might be receiving interference from noise generating gadgets such as PC monitors, TV sets, faulty wall adapters or switching power supplies, motor operated appliances such as washing machines or vacuum cleaners, flourescent lamps, etc. Try turning off or unplugging each of these mentioned gadgets to see if they are the cause. Faulty house wiring or powerline noise might also cause some interference noise which could drown shortwave signals, verify this with your local electrical technicians.
3. Check your radio's settings. Depending on the radio that you use, there might be settings such as attenuator or RF gain, be sure that attenuator are set to zero or turned to off, and RF gain to high. Attenuator must be turned to minimum or OFF position, unless you are receiving too much signas from nearby radio stations. Setting attenuator to mid or high position will attenuate most weak signal, and only those strong local stations will pass through. Setting too much attenuation will prevent you from receiving any station at all. Same with RF Gain, always set it to highest gain setting unless you are receiving too much signals which might overloads your shortwave radio.
4. If these troubleshooting efforts above doesn't works and you still cannot receive any station, then your radio's front end parts might had burn out due to signal overloads. Burn parts might include one or several transistors or diodes. Let your local service technicians check your radio and solve the problem for you. If your radio is still under warranty, send it back to the store or dealer, and let a qualified technician do the repair.
