Does anyone have a source for a simple, inexpensive, desktop digital clock with a 24 hour read-out? Most of the clocks offered by radio equipment suppliers seem to be overkill. All I need is a 1 1/2 inch (3cm) readout like I have on my nightstand.

Thanks

The MFJ-107B

(http://www.mfjenterprises.com/products.php?prodid=MFJ-107B)

It is a very small 24 hr clock with large digits, that sits on my antenna switch right now.  I think it was the first Ham Radio item I bought so I could log stations I heard using my brother's Zenith TransOcianic.  They also make one that has two clocks in the same holder so you can have local time also.

I saw a nice and inexpensive one at Ikea the other day. I would have bought a couple but they did not have any in stock. I will be checking back.

The Discovery Channel store, found in many malls, has a neat 24-hour clock plus date, alarms, indoor/outdoor temperature readings, wind speed, and wind chill.  I have it by the radio.  The outside unit is very small and mounts easily, comes with a long, thin cable so you can place it properly.

How about downloading a 24 clock to your desktop?

I am pretty sure the clock on Macs can be set to display 24 hour time. And I have set up at least one clock on the display of my Linux boxes to display 24 hour GMT/UTC. I am not able to configure the clock that Windows XP displays to show a 24 hour clock, though that is likely to be possible as well.

Using the Gnome desktop in Linux, you can set up a panel specifically with both local and utc clocks, however I have not figured out how to increase the font size for the clocks to achieve that desired 1 1/2" display.
