I like to use atomic clocks so they never have to be set and are extremely accurate (I have 11 of them in my current home). Does anyone know if the USA signal makes it down as far as Lakeside or not?

Thanks,
-Joe

Yes, I have several and the signal reaches us from somewhere in Colorado, USA.
Maybe Ft. Collins??.....I'm not sure.

Yes, Ft. Collins, Colorado. I just didn't know if the signal made it that far or not. THANK YOU!!

Little things like that make a big decision for me.

Thanks gain,

The atomic clock remains on U.S. time, so when the U.S. changes to and from Day Light Savings 3 weeks early, so does the clock. You just need to remember that the minutes are right, but the hour is wrong, for about 6 weeks out of the year.

I just move the setting over to Mountain Time (-7 Greenwich Time) for those short periods and then back to Central Time when we are back in sync.

Yes it works MOST of the time depending on sky conditions radio wise. Just checked with my Sony portable shortwave using built in antenna.

I thought they used Donkey Balls  Beer

So an American man is wondering around Mexico and begins to wonder what time it is.
The American spots a Mexican man having a siesta and decides to wake the Mexican.
The American man asks, "Senor, do you know what time it is?"
The Mexican man looks to a donkey beside him, places his hand on the donkey's balls and lifts them up for a second, then releases the donkey's balls.
The Mexican replies, "It's about 3:45."
The American is flipping out at this time and asks the Mexican in amazement, "How the hell did you do that, man!?"
The Mexican looks at him, slightly irritated and responds, "I place my hand on the donkey's balls, lift, and look at the clock on the wall."
