Looking for a 12/24 hour atomic digital clock

Post by Jim Kelle » Fri, 07 Dec 2001 05:59:14

Was wondering if such a thing is sold.   Would like to set it to UTC in the
24 hour mode.   Was wondering if the atomatic clock set function would work
considering that from the adverti***ts that I've read they only appear to
work in the continental U.S.   Will setting it to a different time zone than
PST affect the performance.

Thanks,

I bought the pair of atomic clocks that Sam's Club sells....I can set one to
display UTC but can't do it on the other....go figure.

I have a SkyScan Atomic Clock.
I can set it to any time I want.  However once it receives the signal from
WWVB it resets to that reference.  There are time zone references that are
switch selectable.  However, they are for PST, MST, CST, and EST.
Maybe if you sourced one from Europe it would have the time zone setting
that would allow UTC, GMT ( I doubt it because they don't have the WWVB
reference signal in their area)  Or maybe we can find someone who knows how
to change the references inside the clock.

Go to "atomictime.com" and look there.  They have at least two models which
display dual time (local time and UTC).

To be more specific, look at the model ET-31BD ( at atomictime.com in the
wall clock section) which can be set to 12/24 hour format and has dual clock
displays.  I set the top clock to local time (-6 for CST) in a 12 hour
format and the bottom display for UTC (-0) in a 24 hour format.

Jim,I have two atomic clocks from  www.shoplifestyle.com ,one set to local time
and the other to UTC 24hr time.They work wonderfully well and have a huge
display.The UTC clock resets at midnight UTC which is 7p.m. local time which has
never been a problem even in the summer when it's still daylight at that
time.The only time they have failed to receive the time signal is when there is
a thunderstorm within about 150 miles.The clocks cost $39.95 each,model#
FWS889.Hope this helps.Frank

The SkyScan clock that I just bought from Costco (for 19.95! :-)  Can be set
to 12/24 hour time and allows a time zone setting of GMT.

It is model # 87315.
