1 Radio Controlled Digital Wall Clock (PREC0097)

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is reponsible for making accurate time available across the UK. This clock picks up NPL’s radio signal, called MSF, from a location in Cumbria. This transmission carries a date and time code that radio controlled clocks use to set themselves to the correct time. This clock is controlled by the MSF signal which is synchronised to the national time scale at NPL, making it ‘forever accurate’.

Product Features

  • Precision radio controlled clocks offer the latest in radio controlled time keeping technology in analogue, LCD & LED formats. Precision products are accurate to 1 second in 10 million years, have automatic set up for time and calendar (where applicable), automatic time change for Spring & Autumn and automatic time checks. Precision use The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) which is the UK’s home of measurement and the nation’s timekeeping. NPL is responsible for operating the national time system and making accurate time available acros the UK. These timepieces keep accurate time by picking up the NPL’s radio signal, called MSF, which is transmitted on 60KHz from Cumbria. This transmission carries a date and time code that the radio controlled products use to set themselves to the correct time. The signal is controlled by atomic clocks at the radio station and are adjusted to keep in step with the national time maintained at NPL’s laboratory in London.

Poor quality LCD screen Sadly, although the digits are large, the viewing angle for the LCD panel is really poor. Unless you’re looking directly at it, every digit just looks like an 8. It was no good for us when we placed it on top of a 3 and a half foot high cabinet in the bedroom, as we could not read the display looking up from the bed. It would be no good mounted on the bedroom wall for the same reason. This is only good for somewhere like a kitchen where you’re most likely on your feet already and can move…

Meh! I bought this here quite a few years ago and while it seemed to work OK, it was only when I put it next to a known accurate RC clock did I notice that while it usually, (note the usually as the other always does when the transmitter is active) this actually syncs three seconds faster than the transmitter signal. I have also checked it against the NPL online time signal and yes. it is three seconds fast when it syncs. Fortunately, I wanted it more for the size of the numerals and the calendar…

Display is wrong This clock receives the time fine from the radio receiver, even in Kent. The only problem is, you cannot read the clock when you look straight at it. The display is clear and the digits are invisible at a 90 degree angle. You have to look at the clock from an extreme acute angle (less than 20 deg) in order to see anything. This is OK if the clock is on the wall near the ceiling and you are sitting on the floor, but otherwise its useless. You cannot stand the clock on the table and look straight…
