[access-uk] Re: WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR ATOMIC CLOCK

Trace

The move of the atomic clock was a news item on the BBC website a while ago,
and the site George gave us is the National Physical Laboratory, which
definitely says the clock is now at Anthorn.

What are thermometer clocks?  I haven't come across them before.  Do yours
talk, and where can you get them?

Oh another one with a name, mine are Martha and Harriet, I have a friend who

has two who are called jamie and Jasmin and another friend who has natasha!!

I thought that the signal was still from Rugby, someone who's from there 
told me that they'd taken down a lot of the masts but not the one for the 
clock.

My Martha gained an hour the other week but I assumed that was because I'd 
put one of those thermometer clocks next  to her.  Harriet did the same when

she was near my dab, I'd put it down to rogue signals or something coming 
from the other equipment.

BTW, I have two thermometer clocks, Henrietta and Louisa, I want a third ahd

she'll be lily.
