Citizen Wave Receiver RCW/SU-3
Citizen Wave receiver for radio controlled watches dcf77 is a device that amplify waves emitted from the German Station DCF77. This product works on Citizen radio controlled watches and it can be used in other type of watches prepared to receive waves from a DCF77 Station (specially Casio radio controlled watches). It also works with other stations situated in the US, China and Japan.
Why do you need the Citizen wave receiver rcw/su3 for dcf77?
You will only need this device in case you are experiencing problems on the reception of the time signal, specially if you live more than 2000 kms away from the station. It works specially well when you need to receive the signal to set automatically the summertime SMT.
Reception of radio waves may be difficult or they may not be received if the radio controlled watch is located a long distance from the transmitter station, under certain environmental conditions (such as the presence of strong radio signals emitted from an airport or military base radar or cellular phones), or under certain geographical conditions (such as when located in a valley between mountains or inside reinforced concrete buildings). In such cases, it amplifies the radio waves to facilitate reception and increase the range over which the waves can be received beyond that described in the user's manual.
Under normal conditions, time signal can be received according to the specifications described in the Citizen user's manual without using this device.
How it works?
Place it with the Citizen mark facing up near the watch so that it nearly touches the location of the antenna, and place both as close to a window as possible with the antenna facing in the direction of the transmitter station. The device does not require a power supply.
