    I have tried to receive a radio signal for quite a while. Today when i manually searched for a signal. This came on my display. It did not change time when the time moved ahead by one hour this Spring. Its about one hour and three minutes behind now. I took a pic of the display today..

    It appears as if it is in the DST (Daylight Savings Time) mode so one would expect it to switch over.

    I am by no means an expert on these but I have been playing around with the Wave Ceptor I have and it took several attempts before i got it to behave properly. Have you checked the manual for how to set up the watch? It requires a number of operations.......

    I had to play back and forth with mine in regards to which city I was in and the DST auto/off function before I got mine to behave properly.

    From the maps in the guides you should be able to pick up the radio signal in Nepean. Try to leave it in a window facing south or south west over night.

    Thanks Skutt.I have a copy of the manual and have ben going through it. I have another Wave Ceptor and its always received the signal fine. The watch is i think maybe three years old but i checked the battery strength, as its solar and its charged well.
