    Receive an atomic signal on your Atomic G's, or do you just let them do it automatically?

    I set them on auto & forget about them. I'm here in New Mexico so I get excellent signal from Fort Collins. They actually conveniently sync anywhere inside the house.

    I live in the Hudson Valley of Upstate New York. You can't get a viable signal until around 2 AM, and I'm not waiting up that long. So it's automatic all the way for me.

    Since all my three atomic Gs receive regularly at 2:02am there is no need to update them manually.

    i let them auto do it. i am fine if they mss a reception or only sync once every few days (maybe even once a week), cause they are plenty accurate to begin with

    but i set the DST manually, as one of them is my daily morning alarm and i don't want to miss an hr just because of bad reception

    I have mine set on auto receive, but occasionally I leave it somewhere where it won't get a signal. Then I'll manually sync it.

    The display looks really empty without RCVD in the corner.

    I have a relatively new waveceptor which I am unable to get on the right time with auto recieve .I am going to have to put it on manual when I am out walking .I have it on CT and set it in the window overnight but it never seems to recieve.My other waveceptor is on the right time.Miy waveceptors are the feild watch style and not the letter after F.

    All my Atomic watches are automatic. There is only one time I search for the signal manually. That is when I get the watch out of the box. Most of them are set to JP time or another time of my timezone.

    Cheers,

    I tried manual on more than one G and it has never worked in my neck of the woods.

    So I gave up on it and I leave it on auto.
