    Small E on dial where Receiving indicator should be...

    I'm hoping the E doesn't stand for error, I have the Gw330 with the module 2688, and right above the seconds counter there is a very tiny E... anyone know what this is?

    Does the manual say anything?

    I've not been able to find anything... it states that if there isn't a signal nothing should appear there.... so I'm confused!

    Nope it is fine, the small E means East Coast...

    That is just an indicator as to what time zone the watch is set to (via home city) This is a North American watch so it would display the time zone it is in

    Cheers

    As per the manual under "Radio Controlled time keeping"

    Depending where you are in the USA it should be ether E,C,M,P

    Cheers

    Oh, cool, yeah I'm EST so that'd be right. Also, does it only show the receiving signal when trying to get the signal or should it always if I'm getting a signal??

    Don't worry about that, most of use here (including me) have tried to figure this out and Casio Buries it in their manual

    To answer your other question, it will always be on because that denotes which time zone your home city is in (I think for all East Coasters it is NYC)

    and is tied to that and not whether or not it gets a signal

    So, will the little satellite dish appear only when trying to calibrate or should it be on regardless?

    Oh,
    My bad..I thought you were asking if the little E stays on at all times

    To answer your question again (but this time correctly) The little sat dish will only stay on if you get the signal synced. If you do it is on until the next time the watch sync's unless you don't get that day's signal and then it turns off.

    If you don't successfully get the signal then the dish is not on

    Cheers
