A few months ago I sent in a publisher’s clearing house thing with a stamp for an atomic alarm clock. I’m kinda sick of having to set my TV to wake me up in the morning and I wanted something that was atomic because it sets itself via satellite. It’s not a radio alarm clock and it takes batteries, not plugged in which makes it even easier if we lose power.
As soon as I get it I put some batteries in and it says that it’s 12:00 and it doesn’t update right away like you see on the commercials. In fact it is still not set right, it says 5:08pm when it’s really 2:06pm. I read in the manual about how it works and it says that it doesn’t talk to the satellite until nighttime so I pretty much have to wait until tonight for it to update. It also thinks that today is January 31st lol. Frankly I don’t know how to set it yet so I am just waiting for it to set itself and hope that it sets the date too.
