clock instructions for radios i own

I always forget how to set the clock on my radios, so I am including the instructions here as a reference for myself and others. I set the clocks on my radios according to UTC rather than local time.

All of these instructions assume that the radio is turned off first.

Eton E5

• hold the "page/time" button for 2-3 seconds
• the hours will flash, during which time the knob can be turned to change the hours
• press the "page/time" button to change the focus to the minutes
• the knob can then be turned to change the minutes
• while the numbers are flashing, F1-F7 can be pressed to set the weekday to 1-7 as desired
• pressing "page/time" while the minutes are flashing will exit clock editing mode

Kaito KA 11

• press "enter" button twice (this causes the clock icon to flash for 6 seconds)
• when the clock icon is flashing, press the number buttons to set the current time

To change between 12/24 hour modes:

• disconnect the power adapter and remove batteries; wait for the display to clear
• connect the power adapter or insert batteries. "SET" will appear on the LCD
• quickly press "enter" button twice. "12-24" will appear on the LCD
• press "1" for 12-hour mode or press "2" for 24-hour mode

Kaito KA 1102

• press "enter" button twice (this causes the clock icon to flash for 6 seconds)
• while the clock icon is flashing, press the number buttons to set the current time

To change between 12/24 hour modes:

• disconnect the power adapter and remove batteries; wait for the display to clear
• connect the power adapter or insert batteries. "SET" will appear on the LCD
• quickly press "enter" button twice. "12-24" will appear on the LCD
• press "1" for 12-hour mode or press "2" for 24-hour mode

Sony ICF SW7600GR

• hold the "local time set" button and press the left/right (inside plus/minus) buttons to set the time difference between local time and UTC
• to set daylight saving time, press DST so the clock icon appears
• hold the "local time set" button and press the left/right (outside plus/minus) buttons to set the local time

Tecsun PL-350

• press and hold the time set button (bottom left of the keypad)
• enter the current time using four digits and 24-hour time
• press the time set button again

I'm going to print these off for my Sony and E5. Now if you could just do the same thing for the rest of the radios I have....

I could, but you'd have to send them to me!
