I appear to have built a fully working bells and whistles singing and dancing time warp whilst not even trying with fully integrated groundhog effect and being trapped alone in Swindon works with 100% accuracy but alas building it in reverse is proving impossible due to the quite common General effect 🤔

Err! Have you tried the reset button :whistling:

Nah, turn it off then on again is more effective in my experience.

 

Of course the volatile memory could then forget everything ...

What about the Radio clocks? Don't they work in TH?

The ones that automatically synchronise with a Satellite or some other source?

 

I think we may be too far from any of the ULF transmitters, the Chinese ones may work.

 

But with the wide availability of internet connections and NTP servers all over the world I suspect they will die out.

> You can say that again!  I have the habit of adding my initials to my internet searches and have come across some unexpected results, but never bored... Cheers,

Exactly, could wipe the coordinates and we'd be stuck with him FOR EVER  :w00t:

Hah that's funny.

Two weeks I was going to build a DCF (77) receiver again and this time for supplying a comparisation time for together with the gps time and online ntp time for my own local ntp server.

And only halfway to realize that it would not work !

The transmitter is in Frankfurt and doesn't go far more then 2000 km on average.

I forgot where we are :whistling:

 

Did some research, and I found some information about a Chinese transmitter working on a higher frequency, 100khz, located in Shaanxi and transmitting on 800kW instead of the Frankfurter 400kW so pretty well over the 3000km which is fine as Bangkok - Shaanxi is 2500km.

 

Project postponed 🙂
