It works...  Time owned: more than 12 months
I ordered this on a whim, needing a clock for the shack. I've had absolutely no problems with this at all. Once I set the time I just forgot about it. Sits on a bookshelf next to my operating position. I've checked against WWV and it's always spot on. I like having the date in UTC for the log. The thermometer is a nice touch, being in a room that has neither heat nor cooling, I know I've operated from times of 59 to 91 degrees F. Didn't know if this thing was gonna work but it has, flawlessly. Recommended.

Can't live in an RF environment  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This clock seemed to be a good thing for the shack, but it won't stay synced with WWV and it's a pain reset when that happens.

The clock just changes date and time on it's own. None of my other digital or analog atomic clocks in my home and shack behave this way.

I'm sure the problem is RFI, but you can't add chokes to this thing.

I will have to say that when requesting a refund for the clock MFJ gave me absolutely no hassle and they were courteous to boot.
