In Japan, JJY is transmitting standard time waves at 60 KHz.
Does Intelli - Time function if this radio wave can be received?

Toshiya Koike,

I think you are referring to AcuRite's atomic clocks.
While JJY's time signal encoding scheme might be close enough to WWVB (I am not sure!), note that the AcuRite clocks only allow you to select North American time zones, sometimes with Alaska and Hawaii.

The display 02008A2 is not "atomic" but includes a battery to preserve time in an outage.

Hello Toshiya,
Intelli-time is different from Atomic. The Intelli-time clock does not use a radio signal. It will be set at the factory and the coin cell battery inside the unit will save the time and date entered however, this model is designed for function in the US and Canada. It will not have your time zone to select thus setting the time correctly.  The time will have to be manually set in your location.
