Re: Self-Timing Clock

NO RATINGS
I got an Indoor/Outdoor digital thermometer with an integrated clock.  The only TIME setting available on this device was to "Select Time Zone".  Leafing thru the directions, trying to discover how to set the clock time, I read that the signal is transmitted from the US Atomic Clock in Denver, CO.  Not only does it take hours to detect this (unknown bandwidth) weak signal, but it only shows/reads Mountain-Time, so its chronically 2 hours slow -- but to the Nano-second!!  No Value Added for this technology.

Good point, MyDesign, but my goodness, do we really have to add signal reception into the equation as to where to place our clocks?

"it should keep all the readings and just coast along on the internal crystal-controlled clock until the next time it gets a good calibration signal. It doesn't do that. It changes the date to some random number. Designed by Monkeys!"

Michael, is it good or bad? I think it's better to fix it permanently near to door or window, so that the signal reception is great
