[K3] Clock bug?

alorona
1. I have the clock on all of the time.


2. Today when I turned on my K3 I noticed that the clock was behind by several seconds.

3. All I did was hit the DISP button, then hit it again to look at the clock again and it was back on the correct time. As if it re-read itself and updated itself to the correct time.

4. What the heck?

It would be so cool if the Elecraft clock set itself when I tune to
WWV, using the data WWV sends.  :)

It would be even 'cooler' if the KX3/K3 clocks were locked to MSF or RWM for the benefit to folks in the rest of the world! No, no, the existing Elecraft transceiver clocks are plenty accurate enough for the purpose of our logs.  If you want anything more accurate, buy a watch.

Or, barely useful fluff that would take up valuable firmware space.
The computer I do my logging on has a much more accurate clock mainly
because of a little program that keeps it synchronized to the US Naval
Observatory NTP server. It updates the computer clock every 15 minutes
and then goes back to sleep. If I reboot the computer the program
automatically syncs with USNO. Last update was 6 minutes before I wrote
this. The computer clock was adjusted -0.002 seconds.

Why waste firmware space?

OTOH if we have bits sitting around idle, why not put them to work!

Re: [K3] Clock bug?

I must hold the record for threads hijacked by the group.

I just wanted to report what I thought might be a bug, not re-think the whole clock thing. I like the clock the way it is.

Yes I am aware of that
My thoughts are a  simple one click app that would do it.
