I have an atomic gulfman that hasn't synced since July 9. I haven't moved it from it's usual nightime resting place either (my watch box). Also, it's oriented in the same position that I've always had it in.

Three nights isn't enough time to be concerned. One of my two sync'd this morning, incidentally.

I was 5 for 5 last night. They all synced fine here in the south east. I keep them in my walk in closet with no window and they seem to always sync fine everyday or at least everyday that check. Can you do a manual sync right now?

Odd, my 9000A didn't sync last night for the first time I can remember.
I've had my gulfman for about a year, and this is the first time I've every had syncing problems. I even tried setting it outside last night, and it still didn't sync.

Clouser do you have any other G's that are syncing? When you try to manually sync does the Gulfman show any signal strength? Thats odd that it stopped all of the sudden like that and hasn't come back.

Since TX (at least for two people) seems to be common here, have you any unusual weather there ?

I've had my GW5600J not sync for a week, and it has never bothered me. Missing a radio signal does not mean the end of the world.

This is wierd... my GW-2500b hasn't synched up since July 8th and it always has before. It's been in the same place where it has successfully synched night after night for months, and I was just beginning to wonder what was up with it when I saw this thread.

My new Mudman, which had it last sync on 5/23, synced fine last night. I live in Virginia. My Riseman has been syncing fine lately as well.

I think all of mine synced the last few days. I'm in eastern Nebraska. Weather conditions do have a lot to do with it though, sometimes I think storm fronts or atmospheric conditions, cloud cover ect. are the cause of syncing troubles. Don't sweat it unless it's days and days without a sync, then check and see what you have near your watches at night that might be causing radio interference like computers, cell phones, ect. My watches are quite sensitive to other electronic devices near them when they are trying to sync.

Right, Bogeyman! I don't have an atomic sync G. It's a Junghans Radio-Controlled watch that I have. It don't sync regularly either...but I don't care.

Remember that signal propagation is always worse during the warmer weather. So watches will not sync as reliably during the summer -- particularly if live far from the transmitter.
