How to Reset the Time on the SioScan Atomic Clock

Manufactured by SkyScan, the SioScan atomic clock combines accurate, radio-controlled timekeeping with helpful features like indoor and outdoor temperature readings. Though the most attractive feature of an atomic clock is its capability to set itself, interference from electronic devices and metal building materials can make it difficult for your clock to receive the atomic signal from Fort Collins, Colorado. There are a few things you can do to help your clock receive the radio-controlled signal. If all else fails, your SkyScan SioScan atomic clock can be set manually.

With an atomic clock you can be on time, every time.

Step 1

Take the batteries out of the SkyScan SioScan atomic clock and outdoor remote transmitter units. Leave the batteries out of both units for at least 10 minutes.

Step 2

Replace the batteries in the SkyScan SioScan outdoor remote transmitter unit first. Replace the batteries in the atomic clock unit within three minutes of replacing the batteries in the outdoor remote transmitter unit.

Step 3

Position the atomic clock and outdoor remote transmitter units within a foot of each other. Wait until both units display the same temperature reading and then move the remote transmitter unit to a dry location out of direct sunlight.

Step 4

Set your SkyScan SioScan atomic clock unit on a window that faces Fort Collins, Colorado so that it can receive the atomic signal. Leave your clock on the windowsill overnight, or from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m., when the signal is the strongest.

Step 5

Choose a permanent location for your SkyScan SioScan clock where it can easily receive the atomic signal. Position your clock away from electronic devices that may interfere with your clock's capability to receive the daily atomic signal.
