flycatcher1 - I have got an AURIOL mini radio-controlled weather station (IAN 48999) purhased from LIDL, a few months ago - I will check out the reset instructions - might be similar/appropriate to your gadget.

Unfortunately have to pop out at moment.

Thanks for the effort AitchBEE. I can set mine up satisfactorily but then it always reverts to Berlin geographical. Nothing against the Germans but I would prefer to be my nearest to be London.

As you purchased it from LIDL a few months ago, try asking them for help via the contact help page http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/lidl_uk/hs.xsl/6491.htm

It may use DCF77 the time service from Berlin that is on 77.5KHz not MSF from Anthlorn that is on 60KHz. It need to be retuned but there is nothing in the manual to tell you how to do it - I've looked!

I have the Ventus W155 but I think is the same machine.

It does - in the manuals German section, page 22, it says it gets it time from DCF-77

If am correct about your machine being the same as mine you could ask [email protected]

Thanks for all comments and help. I will give Lidl a go but I bought my unit nearly two years ago. They are on offer again on Monday and I am thinking of buying one as a present for a friend's birthday. I will have crafty look at the Manual before I wrap it up.

For £19.99 is is cracking value and the only real problem is the fact that it is necessary to select a nearby city and not your actual Lat & Long. A nitpick really.

Lazarus The 2nd Thank You! If ever I meet you the beer is on me.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people on PCA Forums are so helpful and know so much.

Thanks again. The Birthday Present may have to wait.
