    I am new to this. I have a Westclox SG-7 that says Greenwich on the back, and "to reset signal tilt backwards." I'm guessing it expects a radio signal to sync to.

    Do these signals still exist? Where can I learn about them?

    The clock acts peculiarly, and I suspect that might have to do with expecting the signal, but a circuit schematic or any other data would help me figure it out.

    Please point me to where I can get some info on how this sort of clock should work. Thank you.

    Yes, there are still signals for Atomic clocks. You'll have to adjust for your time zone.

    You may be able to find operating instructions on line. Unfortunately, having a good battery and learning how to operate your clock is about all you can do.

    Some locations have good reception of the correction signal and some don't. It's an RF carrier, so generally, higher with fewer obstructions between the clock and the transmitter is better. Sometimes a 90 degree rotation of the receiver/clock (as it sits) can make a big difference.

    Also, the signal is usually strongest at nighttime.
