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

Yup, I sure do, all of my clocks, my watches, my computers, everything, its domething I did as a child and have never grown out of it, handy though as I can say to my Mum "where's such and such" and she'll know what I'm wittering on about.

I know my watch who's called Rose sometimes says uk time updated when I
press the button and sometimes she says uk time not updated, wonder if its
because there's been no new signals since she last sorted herself out.

No, I didn't think it should make a difference either.

Is the signal transmitted at intervals, or is it always being sent out?

Carol:
The transmitter for the standard time signal moved earlier this year from
Rugby to a site on the west coast of Cumbria - the lease on the rugby
site
ran out.

This distance shouldn't make a material difference from London.

carol,

I do not know the answer to your atomic clock problem, but the signal may
be
variable depending on where you position the clock, in the same way that
a
portable radio may work well in one position and not so well somewhere
else.

Hi all,

Some of you will have the RNIB's atomic clock.  Ours has served us well
for
four years now, without even changing the batteries.  We were not
over-surprised when it didn't change today and figured that probably the
battery strength needed to be greater to acquire the atomic signal than
even
to use speech ... so we changed batteries - and waited!  No, she didn't
change ... and hadn't when we left our home 20 minutes later!

Thankfully, when we arrived home, we found that Freda (for that's her
name)
had put herself right - at last!

We're a bit puzzled though at the time this took, since we remember, when
she was new, that it didn't take long for her to acquire the correct
information.

Anyone any theories as to why it should take so long to acquire the
signal?
I know this used to be transmitted from Rugby but that this changed a few
years back.  Is it just because the signal is further away from us now
that
it takes so long, or is it only transmitted at certain times in a day?
Where does it come from now?

I'm just curious so would appreciate any answers that anyone can give.

(Incidentally, she's called Freda because our friend first introduced us
to
the atomic clock with his before they became available for VI's;  and he
affectionately called his Fritz!)

Now, less of this waffle and over to you ...

Thanks.
