Purchased a new AcuRite 02003M but after February 2018 it always syncs the date one day behind. I have manually set it to the correct date, but the next time the atomic clock syncs I am one day behind again. It was working fine for several months. It reports the correct year, just the wrong day, any ideas?

Hello xref,
This issue is caused by the atomic signal being picked up on the display. We do recommend turning the Atomic Signal off.  The directions to do so are listed below.  

1. Press and Hold the Up and Down buttons (located on the back of the display) for at least 10 seconds. Watch the antenna icon in the bottom right corner of the display. When the icon disappears, release the buttons. Atomic Signal Reception is now disabled.
2. To reactivate the receiver, simply press and hold the UP/Down buttons for at least 10 seconds until the antenna icon reappears in the lower right corner.
