      Answer

      You choose your time zone and the clock will synch up with shortwave radio signal from WWV, keeps accurate time via atomic clock in Fort Collins, Colorado or somewhere else in Hawaii (I think). If you live in a big concrete building like I do or around lots of big buildings, it does not receive well. Anyway, you can still set the time yourself, but it is cool to have it synch automatically. There is also a button for daylight savings time so it keeps your time accurate.

        Answer

        Follow the steps exactly for programming: the buzzer is the default. I had to do this twice: first, make sure you program a radio station as one of the presents (1,2,3 etc.) And, as you go through the programming function, remember to hit the snooze bar (ENTER) after each programming selection. I didn't have the station programmed the first time and the result was the default buzzer.

          does this device run on electricity with a cord to plug in or does it just run on battery only?   (10 Answers)

          i hope it does have an electric cord to plug in. i don't want to think about having to change batteries. i know it has a battery back up system, but i don't see anything about electrical. if it does run on electricity, it is the one i'll buy because i think the projecting of what's on the clock onto the wall would be cool.

            I have this product and you can plug it in via cord. I keep mine plugged in. This product is great! My only problem - my cats think the red light on the ceiling (the time from the clock) is a laser pointer, hehe!

                Answer

                Hi Pappy, here are some tips on how to improve the reception of the unit: 1.Extend the FM wire antenna fully to increase reception sensitivity. 2.Connect the supplied AM loop antenna to the unit. Rotate the antenna horizontally for optimum reception. 3.Do not place the AM loop antenna near the unit or other AV equipment, as noise may result. 4.Keep digital music players or mobile phones away from the AM loop antenna or the FM antenna, as this may lead to reception interference. I hope this helps. Thanks! ^Ron

              After hitting snooze and the alarm rings again, is it still gentle?   (6 Answers)

              I currently have an alarm that offers gradual wake up. After the initial sounding--if I hit snooze and it resounds-- it does NOT gradually sound again. It just goes right into the loudest setting. Inducing panic... So if I hit snooze and the alarm rings again, will it gradually go off again?

                Answer

                Yes it is gradual. Also, if you hit once it will sound again in 10 min, if you hit twice it will sound again in 20 min, etc.

                  We listen only to NPR, and the reception is just fine. Our previous radio reception was not as good as this one.

                  Nope... it does NOT have an input jack which would allow you to "Aux In" an external signal. Sorry!
