Yes, you can calibrate on the standard 9,996 KHz signal. It gives a tick on every second, two ticks on 30 seconds and silence + 2 ticks on the minute. This time signal is sincronized to the German Mainflingen station at 77.5 KHz: DCF77, which can be used as well.

Also in U.K, in Anthorn, Cumbria, you have the 60 KHz MSF station.
More difficult to get, at least in my location (Northern Italy) are the WWV stations at 5, 10 and 15 MHz.

Cheers,

Dear MrPaul,

You should set the receiver in CW, as shown on the uploaded PC screen.

For auto cal, just follow the procedure as shown in the manual. But remember to do it AWAY from the central spike, and to use a known-accurate, steady cal signal.
