    Atomic time function on MTG910DA

    Anyone know if the atomic time function on the MTG910DA will work in Japan or not?

    somebody digs it up in the manual :-D (if not, i can look it up tonite)

    but if my memory serves right, it will work in Japan as well

    Here's the manuals for modules 2638 and2609

    These may be Japanese modules, not sure.

    Just check on the back of your watch, four small numbers inside an engraved box. See if they match.

    Hope this helps

    I have the 2638 model; the way it reads, looks like US only for this model; it's possible that models sold in JP would work in that area; it's a good question; I'll see what a little research can come up with and post back; hope this helps.

    Re: Atomic time function on MTG910DA

    Mine is also equipped with a 2638 module and the caseback is marked Thailand. The manual references the transmitter at Ft. Collins, CO and does not make mention of transmitters in Japan or Europe.

    I'm curious as to why there isn't a globally uniform frequency to transmit time calibration signals. Anybody know?

    Hi Mike,

    I found this on one of the casio web sites:

    Reception radio wave
    JJY (Japan)
    WWVB (the North American region)
    MSF/DCF77 (European area)


    40kHz/60kHz (Fukushima/Kyushu both bureau corresponding model)
    60kHz (the North American region)
    60kHz/77.5kHz (European area)


    The newer G-Shocks like the GW-9000 work in all the areas; my new AWG-500 receives all (except the 77.5kHz).

    Haven't had much luck with the MTG-910da; so far only North American frequency. A universal Frequeny would be ideal; Hope this helps.

    Re: Atomic time function on MTG910DA

    I have found out that the MTG910DA (2638 module) can receive JPY 40 and 60 signal. All you have to do is to access the test mode and manually select the band to receive signal. Here are the steps,

    1. Press "B" + "C" + "D" button at the same time in time keeping mode.

    2. OK, now the default is "U60" which means US band 60, press "D" to select J40 or J60.
    3. Press "C" to start the receiving mode.

    and there you go.
