“ Type: Clocks „
The model I have the Oregan RM113E and it is the best clock I've ever bought. You never have to set the time or move it back or forward to adjust for BST/GMT because it does it for you. It has two alarms (with an eight minute snooze for each alarm) which are stopped by pushing a big button on the top of the clock. This button also activates the soft blue light which is amazingly bright. I know it seems a little sad to get excited about an alarm clock, but the Oregon Scientific Radio Controlled clocks are the absolute business. On this model (the 113E) you have a two line display with the top half displaying the time and the day or seconds. The bottom line displays the date or the alarm time(s). This clock really is great. The only very minor minus point is that it uses AAA batteries and not AA batteries. Not a huge problem and probably not even worth mentinoning on reflection.
I have a few things like this item.. MSF Rugby clocks are great. We use them at work in our mission critical engineering solutions, but be aware that they are sometimes prone to erroneous data if in a poor signal area. I have one at home that likes to go bananas sometimes - ive failed to wake up because the signal told my clock it was the wrong time!! Also note that the rugby signal is turned off every 3rd tueday (i think) for maintenence... Otherwise, id recommend any product with a time signal updater on - a word of advice: The SW radio waves can sometimes be blocked or altered, and the positioning of your clock can matter. if you are not getting a strong signal and therefore you are not getting the right time - simply move your clock 90 degrees clockwise and this should cure the problem.
This is one of the best purchases I have ever made of an alarm clock. One never ever needs to adjust the time on the clock (that is, if you are permanently resident in the UK, and there exists some other signal generators at other European Countries), simply because it automatically synchronises the clock and calendar when brought within the range of the radio signal MSF at Rugby. And when your batteries run out, simply get some new ones (2 “AAA” batteries), replace, leave it and lo and behold, you have the right time and date on it in just less than a minute! And what’s more, it has a large 3-line LCD display , with a blue night-light which illuminates with just the touch of a button, and also when any one of the dual daily alarm goes off. An additional feature is its countdown capabilities…so you will never forget any future date which is of importance to you, be it a birthday, anniversary, wedding or graduation ceremony!
