Hi all :)
I am just finishing my study session in Poznań, Poland. It was a little bit less exhaustive than the previous ones, however, just as interesting.
When flying out I was a little bit afraid that they would make me take my watch off at the security check in, but eventually they didn't and everything was all right. I don't like taking my watch off and I actually haven't taken my gw-9100 off since I have it (2007-10-29).
It was the first time that I was flying out of England with my watch so I was curious about the signal receiving. It normally receives the UK signal when I wear it in London. Sometimes (depends on where I am) it cannot receive the UK signal well and it tries the German one (which can be received in London as well).
Now in Poznań (which is approximately half-way between Warsaw and Berlin) the receiving was allright. The dormitory room where I slept had a west-facing window and my bed was a little bit aside (ie. not directly under the window). When the home city (which I changed as soon as the plane had just taken off) is set to CET (e.g. Berlin; btw. I wonder why there are 4 city codes for the very same time zone ==CET, but none for the Nepalese Time), it auto-receives at 2:01 for the first time (unlike in London 1:01). Once I even showered at the time and it received the signal allright right there in the shower (GET 2:05) :))
Now the best part. I have bought an MP3 player with a FM radio receiver lately. When in London I tune to BBC Radio 4 and the time signal goes just pip-pip-pip-pip-pip-beep at the very same moment when my watch shows 55-56-57-58-59-00
:)) I absolutely love this :) (I haven't mentioned it on the forum somehow)
now in Poznań with Polskie Radio 1 (the main channel with news and the *time* *signal*) and having synced against the German signal it is just the very same thing :)
whether it is in the morning or evening I can either spot no difference at all or something like 0.1 s or 0.2 s at maximum
my this is something like timekeeping orgasm ;)
