My old, trusty atomic alarm clock recently decided to ignore the “alarm” part of its job description, so I’m in the market for a new one. I’m having real problems finding the exact clock I want, and my specifications aren’t terribly unreasonable (I think). Here they are:
- Must be set by the atomic clock radio signal.
- Must be permanently backlit (meaning I should be able to read it in a pitch-black room without reaching over and pressing a button.)
- Must be digital.
- Must have a fairly loud alarm.
- Must not be a large, bulky, combination radio-cd-toaster that takes up half my desk.
I can find clocks meet any 4 out of these 5 specs, but none that pass all of them. Any ideas?
