    The other night I was at Wal-Mart looking for a battery operated alarm clock
    to take with me on my Leonid shower watch. I was afraid that I might doze
    off in my car in advance of the peak. Anyway, I discovered a nifty little
    "radio controlled" clock from Oregon Scientific. It receives the signal from
    WWV (or whatever it's called now) and sets itself. I've had it running since
    last Sunday and just compared its LCD readout with the atomic clock at
    http://nist.time.gov/ . The alarm clock is about 0.3 seconds faster than the
    atomic time on the Internet. That's pretty good in my opinion and all for
    about $13.00 US currency! Now I finally have an atomic clock that I can use
    anywhere and for very little money. It works well as an alarm too.
    
    The silver model I chose is RM103A. Oregon Scientific online can be located
    at http://www.weatherconnection.com/oregonscientific/default.asp
