New Kit Idea

Don't know if anyone saw this yet, but this:

looks like it could be the basis for neat new kit. I know I would buy one :-)

we have one of these modules. they're great but extremely finicky. and of course dont work indoors (where many clocks are :)) and the frequency changes from country to country. so while its awfully neat - theres a lot of good reasons why we -dont- have any kits that use them :/

Fair enough...how about one with a GPS receiver to set the time?

its more likely but the GPS has to be inexpensive. ah, tradeoffs!
