    Thanks for the heads-up, Tac. Hope the Casio radio towers are adequately equipped.

    Wink Re: Heads Up

    Cool,

    I have seen a video once of an atomic clock ticking to 60 seconds, before it returned to 00:00:00. I don't think a Waveceptor watch will do that.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Re: Heads Up

    Anybody who owns an atomic watch could notice a difference when they are watching TV and listening to the radio.

    The times don't match up every hour when a new TV show or radio show starts.

    I thought something was wrong about six months ago.

    It might not be alot of time, but adding a second will help speed up the seconds in the long run so they are even.

    I notice it's off about 10 seconds.

    It could be dependent on the particular radio/TV station, but probably not all programs always start "on the dot".
