    Yep, I replaced the batteries. It was two hours fast again this morning. This evening I'll remove then reinsert the batteries and let it auto set.

    At 16:55 PST I removed then reinsert the batteries and it found the signal. The lesson here is it pays to read the manual.

    Last night I noticed the La Crosse clock in the kitchen was three days ahead at 04/27 and the clock outside was correct.

    I don't know. I've documented anomalous readings for two identical clocks for years. What direction they're facing seems to be a factor. It's a pain to get them to set themselves and I usually have to do it manually. According to the manual it's best to let them pick up the time signal in the evening due to wave propagation.

    Hmm, interesting! Any high strange occurrences in this area that you've heard of?

    Yesterday the La Crosse clock in the backyard was 12 hrs. 2 min. fast with a date of 02/08/2004. There was a lightning storm on the 20th and it could have made the clock set itself to the default date.

    Lightning strike, big clock? Well, the default date wasn't 1955 but any suspicion of meddling with the time stream?

    There's a picture of clock in post #1. Today it was one day behind showing 03/22 and I set it yesterday. That's the Skull & Bones number. I heard the number means the year Jesus was actually born. Clif High said in a YT video that all the people depicted in Jesus' era wore medieval clothes. I have one La Crosse clock outside, one inside and a third that's a newer model. The most problematic one is outside and maybe there's corrosion effecting the electronics. The manufacturer could have fixed the bugs because the newer one has been problem free. If my watch or clocks are exactly one hour off it makes think I was abducted and it's not a DST issue. In a James Rink roundtable discussion one of his guests said his watch was exactly one hour off and he later found out he was off world for two weeks. If that's actually happening I should return with a T-shirt, coffee mug or some other souvenir.

    The La Crosse clock outside shows yesterday's date in the morning and displays the correct date in the evening. I think a lightning storm we had gave it more problems. :(

    The La Crosse clock in the backyard had the correct time and date, but the day of the week was wrong. The year was 2099 or eighty years in the future.

    My laptop was suddenly an hour behind for some reason early this morning...It was on the correct time the first hours of the morning it was on, but while I was on it the time changed and I did not notice straight away...I didn't notice until I saw a time stamp on a website that didn't match up, and it was like a remembered an hour that wasn't there lol, then I went into the living room to get my cell phone which had the correct time...It was the laptop time that changed, for whatever reason...

    I used to have a lot of trouble with my watches always being fast or slow, but now I have a Casio Rangeman, and it updates automatically, so it keeps time much better.

    My laptop randomly has changed an hour, once forward and once back an hour, its done it twice this year...In January it changed and ast week it did it the second time, at that moment I checked and reset the clock and synced it with internet time as it was before...So time will tell if it stays set lol...
