    Re: Strange goings with a Casio G Shock watch
    From: Bill Lionheart

    I would love a watch with a time/date recorder but these seem to be
    really expensive. Do all watches in the Rangeman series have this
    The ability to update from radio time signals seems attractive but as
    far as I know these do not work offshore. The UK Long Wave MSF  time
    signal (that was called Rugby only works around 100 nm offshore I
    think. I did however see a very nice electronic module that you could
    use to set clocks using your own radio time signal. I was thinking of
    using that to update the clocks on the boat as it was very cheap and
    could accept time from multiple formats as input. So of course you
    could drive it off GPS, but you could also set a master clock off an
    HF radio time signal too.
