The Braun time control classic is set and controlled
automatically by the long wave radio signal of the
German time transmitter DCF 77 (Central European
Time). The transmitter is situated at Mainflingen,
24 km south of Frankfurt/Main.
It uses as time source the caesium atomic clock of
the Federal Physical Technical Institute in Brunswick.
The radio signal can be received within a minimum
radius of 1000 km of the transmitter depending on the
position of the clock and the local conditions.
Interference can occur as with any radio receiver,
f. ex. caused by external factors such as TV sets,
computers or radios, or by metal paneling in or on
buildings (see separate paragraph «Interference»).
This appliance operates with one AA 1.5 V battery.
For best performance, use an alkaline manganese
battery (type LR 6, MN 1500, AM 3, AA, e.g. Duracell).
Do not use rechargeable batteries, since their voltage
level is too low. Make sure the battery poles are
properly inserted.

the household waste. Please dispose of them
at special collection points or return them to
your retailer.
