    Radio Synchronized Clock
    From: Brian Whatcott

    I was browsing a clockmaker's catalog yesterday, and saw the range of
    mechanical and quartz clock movements on offer. I was surprised to see a
    clock module not much bigger than the quartz clock module with which I
    expect you are familiar.
    I knew the quartz modules can be had for $10, but I was surprised to see
    the radio clock  module was on offer at $24 (year 2000 prices).
    The recent thread querying the effective range of such devices came to
    mind. I did not take much notice at the time.    But a clock that will hold
    1 second accuracy indefinitely and powered by one or two available cells
    has its attractions.
    I notice the proviso that the clock face be radio transparent, so I suppose
    that a metal cabin interior would not be practical.   Has anybody sailed
    with one of these devices?
